In Focus Photo Competition

Ahead of our reopening, we want you to send in photos under the brief of: a snapshot of life in Coronavirus Britain. We know it’s quite difficult to feel inspired at the moment when there’s nowhere to go and few people to see (apart from virtually) but we hope that this task might alight some creativity and be an insightful look at how we are all living in this strange time.

A top-notch panel of judges from our very own Photography Group will award the three best photos submitted with a fantastic prize – two tickets to a future York Theatre Royal production!

To enter, submit one photo only by email or WeTransfer to with the subject header ‘In Focus Photo Competition’. Make sure your name is included in the title of your photo. Deadline for entries is midnight on Friday 8 May.


To enter, you must have taken the photography yourself and own the copyright to your photograph. By submitting a photo you grant York Theatre Royal permission to publish your photo on our social media channels and website – this does not affect any other rights. Photographs submitted after the deadline has passed will not be accepted. Winners receive two tickets to a future York Theatre Royal production, excluding Cinderella.
