Liverpool Cathedral announces annual photography competition
LIVERPOOL Cathedral's annual photography competition is this year looking for entries on the theme of "Liverpool Life".
There are two categories - Life in the Hope Street Area and Life in the City Centre with both accepting junior (under 17) and adult entries. Participants are allowed to enter both categories, provided they fit the age criteria.
This year's judges are: Mike McCartney, former Liverpool Post photographer Martin Birchall, Dr Laura MacCulloch (curator of British art at National Museums Liverpool) and Liverpool artist Anthony Brown.
The competition closes on Friday, August 28 (5pm) and all entries will go on display at the Cathedral from September 22 - October 28.
Prizes include hotel stays, theatre tickets, and a one-to-one photography tutorial from one of the judges.
There will also be a People's Winner, chosen by the public.
For inspiration, from July 21-September 16, the Cathedral the Cathedral will be exhibiting two paintings of Liverpool life on loan from the Walker Art Gallery. The works Bold Street and St John's Market, by Charles Trevor Prescott (1890-1942), have been selected for their honest reflection of life in Liverpool in the Victorian period.
