Hold Still is a community photography project to capture the spirit, the mood, the hopes, the fears and the feelings of the nation as we continue to deal with the coronavirus outbreak.
It was launched by the Duchess of Cambridge and her patronage the National Portrait Gallery on 7 May. Its aim is to create a unique photographic portrait of the people of our nation as we hold still for the good of others, and celebrate those who have continued so we can stay safe.
The deadline for the competition is 18 June, and Kate, looking rather lovely in a blue Stella McCartney dress, has released a video sharing some of her favourite pictures so far, and to encourage others to enter.
Posting on Instagram, she said: "With one week left to submit your entries to the 'Hold Still' project, The Duchess of Cambridge has shared some of the amazing images and stories that have been submitted so far.
"Every story matters and telling yours during lockdown is what this project is all about, so please take the time to share your images and experiences before Thursday 18th June at 6pm.
"You can submit an image through the link in our bio, and have the chance to be one of 100 photographs on display in a virtual exhibition hosted by the @nationalportraitgallery for people all around the world to see. #HoldStill2020."
Some of the moving images Kate shared included a little girl performing Frozen's Let It Go for her family who are trying to work from home, and an image of a girl playing noughts and crosses with her granny on a living room window.
