Inspiring Thames competition

Take a picture of the river Thames and win
a digital camera!

PortCities is launching a competition for school children (under 16s) to celebrate the Thames.

The Thames is one of the most famous rivers in the world and the most important to Britain. It carried the merchant ships that once helped make Britain the richest country in the world, and the warships that defended Britain against enemies, and many famous people - alive and dead - have been carried on its waters.

It has also appeared in countless great works of art – including paintings, books and films, from Charles Dickens to James Bond.

But it’s more than that – it’s a river for everyone. Its shores are still used for work today, its sunsets are more beautiful then ever thanks to new buildings, and the people who use it daily make it a truly special river.

PortCities (the UK’s only website dedicated to helping people discover more about the maritime past of British ports) has launched its great new competition for school children to get them to become involved with the Thames.

The Competition

We would like you to take a picture of the Thames under the three areas below.

  • My Thames
