Photography Competition 2017

Photography Competition 2017

Merseyway Shopping Centre is hosting a photography competition for budding photographers to celebrate the rich heritage and vibrant community of Stockport.

Open to photographers of all ages, entrants are invited to photograph the places and people they love most in Stockport to highlight the development of the town whilst celebrating its heritage assets. The competition is part of Merseyway’s wider ‘Celebrating Stockport’ campaign which launched last month with the installation of a community art piece at the centre which was created by local primary school pupils.

Merseyway’s photography competition will see twelve entries shortlisted across three categories: amateur aged under 16, amateur aged over 16 and professional, and all shortlisted photos will be showcased in a pop-up art exhibition at the centre in November.

Shoppers and the general public will be asked to vote for their favourite photographs via the centre’s Facebook page and an on-site ballot box. The winner of each category will win £200 of shopping vouchers to spend at the centre. Also, with a print of each of the final twelve photographs up for grabs, every person who votes will automatically be entered into a draw to win a print of their favourite photograph.

Entries should be emailed as high res jpegs to Hannah@echo-pr.co.uk and will be accepted until Thursday 2nd November.
