Photo competition: What does digital culture mean to you?

At NDF we’re all about enhancing digital interaction with culture and heritage and we want to “see” what’s happening in the GLAM sector through your eyes. We’re eager to refresh our website and want to celebrate the great work you are doing by displaying examples of it on our front page.

The competition opens on May 18th and closes on July 22nd at 5.00pm.


How it works

Take up to 5 photos of digital interactions happening in your gallery / library / archive / museum or wider community.
