What object sums up your experiences of 2020? What object will most remind you of 2020 in years to come? What ‘thing’ couldn’t you have coped without? Or has kept your spirits up?

Charity The Young Foundation's Museum of 2020 campaign is asking you to submit a photograph of an object which has come to mean more to them in 2020 – with an explanation of why you have chosen it and share it via Twitter using the hashtag #Museumof2020 (or you can submit it on Bored Panda!)

It could be anything from the chair you’ve sat in all year due to working from home, the cookbook you couldn’t have lived without when restaurants were shut, to an online purchase that’s helped combat boredom – the more creative, the better!

The Young Foundation will collate these images for a virtual exhibition in 2021 that explores our changing relationship with ‘stuff’ and how we come to understand our collective experiences through objects, rather than discussion.

Soda bread is the absolute shizz! Especially when you have it with lashins of real butter and a big plate of stew!
