These are the best 25 pictures showing family experiences in lockdown

Lockdown wasn’t like anything we’ve ever experience before.

Families were kept apart, life stopped and we were all forced to stay inside.

But throughout it all, we still took lots of pictures to remind us what we’d all lived through.

The Cartridge Save ‘A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words’ competition has selected the 25 of the best pictures from across the UK showing our experiences of this unique time.

From lonely graduations to honouring key workers, the public now has a chance to vote for the best picture in three categories – under 18s, 18-50, and over 50s.

Let’s take a look at all the entries:

























A public vote will account for 25% of the final judging, and then a panel of experts will choose a winner from each category, and finally decide an overall winner who will take home a cash prize. 

Deborah Linton, a journalist and one of the judges, said: ‘What I love about this competition is that each image has an individual story to tell. It’s been great seeing what friends and families across the UK have been doing during lockdown and how they have pulled through together.’

Fellow judge and national press photographer Mark Waugh added: ‘We’ve had some fantastic entries to the competition and I’m really impressed with the images we’ve received from all over the UK.

‘From the good to the bad, lockdown has tested us all over the last few months, and these images really showcase that.’

Managing director of Cartridge Save, Ian Cowley, commented: ‘We wanted to create this competition to capture history happening through the eyes of regular people up and down the country. It’s important to remember these moments so that future generations can look back and see how we survived lockdown.’ 

You can vote for your favourites on the website until 25 August.
