Collectors are being given a chance to show their most prized treasures to the wider world.
They can apply to Portsmouth Museum for a chance to have highlights from their hoards put on public show.
Judges will pick their favourite three collections, and a selection from each one will be displayed.
The collections will be featured alongside a major new exhibition at the museum, A Hard Choice, which starts on February 14.
It will feature around 120 objects from the city’s museum collection, chosen by collections manager Rosalinda Hardiman.
Residents can find out how to apply by going to www.portsmouthmuseums.co.uk and clicking on ‘exhibitions’.
The closing date is Sunday, February 15.
