Send us your pictures for Snapshot Suffolk as we get through the lockdown together during the coronavirus outbreak

Throughout the coronavirus outbreak, all of us have had to find new ways to connect, have fun and keep active - often using methods we never dreamt of before.

We may at times feel lonely, frustrated and anxious about the future but we're pulling together to get through lockdown and we want to share some of the ways you've been doing it with Snapshot Suffolk.

We want to see what you are doing in the lockdown period; how you spend your time; how you video chat with family and friends; how you spend Friday nights in your home without going out, and above all, how you have fun together.

Some of you have already sent in pictures of what's happening in your home. But we want more - and we'll publish all of them here.

Entries need to be just one snapshot, taken in your home or garden between now and the day lockdown is lifted.

Apart from that anything goes. Your picture can be candid or staged, funny or contemplative – and we know pets are likely to feature for many of you.

We want Snapshot Suffolk to be a record of local life during this pandemic, and we will be using as many as possible to create an online gallery and great content for the Bury Free Press newspaper, too.

It will be a chance for us all - and future generations - all to see how the people of Suffolk and Bury St Edmunds in particular, got through these extraordinary times.


To share your images follow us on Instagram @buryfreepress, Twitter @buryfree and Facebook facebook.com/BuryFreePress and tag your posts using #SnapshotSuffolk

You can also email pictures to us at news@buryfreepress.co.uk with Snapshot Suffolk as the subject.

Please include a caption telling us a little bit about the image as well as your name and where you are from.

The picture needs to have been taken in Suffolk and please only send one picture per post. Send your pictures to us before lockdown ends and please make sure you follow all government guidelines if taking a picture out and about.

The entries will be judged by the Bury Free Press editor Barry Peters and we will have one main prize, of a £20 Love2Shop voucher along with a six-month pass for our digital app.

If you are entering and are under 16, please make sure you have your parents' permission to enter and please tell us your age on the entry.
