The Post Hole photography and art competition

So, it's a new academic year and a new team here at The Post Hole, and that also means the launch of our new photography and art competition. The theme will be ‘EXCAVATION’.

We want to see your amazing drawings, illustrations and photos – perhaps of your newly uncovered site, exciting find or beautifully executed archaeological technique – or anything else excavation-related. The winning entry will be seen on the front cover of an issue of The Post Hole, with other stand-out entries featuring in a piece. There is also the possibility that they will be used in later issues or promotions.

Submit your entries to design [at], or use our online upload form, which also details all the terms and conditions.

Please remember to give your entry a title and include your full name. JPEG or PNG formats preferable!
