Framing Croydon: The Buildings That Shape Us

Calling residents of Croydon! Share your images of buildings in Croydon and tell us why you love them to be featured in an upcoming exhibition!

We want to see your photos of Croydon – good, bad or ugly – we don’t discriminate! We just want to see your favourite snaps of the special place we call home. Need some inspiration? What buildings do you love, which places have good memories, or maybe there’s somewhere you think needs more attention? Check out the current submissions here.
Your photo could even feature as part of our upcoming exhibition in September 2024!

The best photographer will also win 2 free tickets to future events at Stanley Arts.
