Bee Monument: Photo Competition

By 22nd January 2024June 30th, 2024No Comments

Photograph the Bee!

And see your work featured in the Eastgate Centre and be in with a chance to win a prize!

Bees are a powerful symbol in art. They have many meanings, all of which are positive. We want to harness all that positivity into a big bee collage.  So to coincide with the Gloucester leg of the Anti-Violence Bee Monument, we’re running a photo competition to create a large photographic hive of bees on the Creative Canvas at the Eastgate Centre.  The competition is open to everyone.

Get Involved

We want to see photos of all sorts of bees, whether they’re real or artificial, symbols or objects, doing the waggle dance or collecting pollen, they are all eligible for the competition, and there’s a special prize for the best image of the Bee Monument.

Competition closes on 5th March and winners will be notified by the 8th March.

It’s easy to enter!

Submit your image using the form below (up to 3 images per person) and we’ll do the rest.

SMALL PRINT: By entering you allow Hundred Heroines and partner organisations of the Bee Monument to use your image in promoting anti-violence campaigns, on their websites and social media channels.  The copyright remains with the photographer at all times.

Competition – Closes at 16:00 on 5th March


  • The winners of our three favourite images will each receive a selection of bee-related goodies.
  • The winner of the under-16s category will receive a copy of the Book of Bees, full of interesting facts such as who survived being stung by 2,443 bees
  • The winner of the best picture of the Bee Monument  will receive an engraved bee trophy.

Your data will be used for administration purposes only and will be removed within 28 days.

This project has been made possible through the generous support of
