Share a family heirloom and you could win!

All objects have a story and Traces wants to hear them!

Do you have a treasured family heirloom that you’d like to share with our readers?

Traces magazine is planning a special feature called ‘Your Heirlooms’, in which we share some of our readers’ family heirlooms and the stories behind them. If you would like to see your heirloom in print, please send us:

  •  a high-res (300dpi) JPG image of your heirloom (image quality is essential!)
  • 100–200 words about your heirloom and why it is special
  • your name and city/town (you may use a false name and location if you wish).

Heirlooms will be chosen based on the quality of the photograph and the stories behind them.

One lucky contributor will also receive a mystery book prize!

We look forward to seeing your wonderful objects in our inbox!
