What is Snapshots - We want your old photographs to print and for!


We have all become used to scrolling through the galleries of photos on our smartphones but what about those much-loved print photographs stashed away in the attic,  in a box under the bed or in that “miscellaneous” drawer in the kitchen?  Are they destined to be forgotten forever in the digital age?

Well, it’s time to dig them out and show them some love.

We want readers to take a photo of those much-loved print photos and send them to us.  Whether it was taken a few years ago on an instant camera or a few decades ago, we want the photo that stands out for you. 

 It can be from a social event, a landscape shot, a funny pic or even a holiday snap - we want them all. Yes, even those dodgy “look at the state of my hair” debs photos!
