Share your journey with #OurPlaceCompetition

Date 17 Jun - 11 Jul 2022
Time 12:00PM
Age 13+

Be part of a new online showcase of the solar system on Divis and the Black Mountain.

Space is so vast it can be unimaginable what exists beyond the bubble of our home planet. From now until Sunday 10 July however, you have the unique opportunity to visit the solar system, capture its beauty, experience its scale, and share your experience for generations to come.

Share your best photograph for a chance to win a bundle that will include some Our Place in Space merchandise, an Amazon Echo Dot, and a signed Oliver Jeffers book.

Oliver Jeffers himself will be picking the winner for each category to be announced on Wednesday 13 July 2022.

Two entrance categories

'Our Spectacular Landscape'. Amateur photographers — this one's for you! Capture the solar system on this spectacular landscape of blanket bog and boardwalks with out-of-this-world views!

'Our Place Earth'. Gather your partner, family and friends (those of the furry kind on leads are welcome too!) and take your best action shot of you experiencing the solar system from Earth. You could re-create your favourite movie, take a space selfie or create an optical illusion... the sky's the limit!
