As part of our celebration of St George’s Square, and our mission to tell its story, the Huddersfield Local History Society (HLHS) Memories of Our Square project is proud to present the

Memories of Our Square Photography Competition

Capturing St George’s Square 2020-2022

We would love to see how you have captured St George’s Square in a photograph. You may have taken a picture that shows the full expanse of the Square, or one that focuses upon a small area or a particular feature.  All we ask is that you have taken the picture since the beginning of 2020, it is of sufficient digital quality to reproduce on this site and in the upcoming Memories of Our Square book, and that you tell us where it is in the Square (in case it is a part we have not yet discovered).

The winning entries will be shared with the West Yorkshire Archive Service (WYAS) to be preserved for future generations.
