Spaces photography competition

Published on: Monday, 17-August-2015

Beautiful images of places and things that make people feel good have been flooding in as part of a new wellbeing photography competition in Knowsley.

Budding photographers invited to submit images of a place or space that means something to them – whether an exciting place or a one where you can relax and feel at peace.

Already lots of fantastic images have been submitted – and can be viewed in an online gallery on photo sharing website Flickr.

The ‘Spaces’ photography competition is being organised by Knowsley Council and is open to people of all ages, ability who live, work, volunteer or study in Knowsley. 

The images should convey a place that represents “wellbeing”  - it could be an open field, the gym or even just that first cup of tea of the day… as long as it is something that makes you feel good.

The Spaces competition will be made up of three different categories - Spaces to Think, Spaces to Learn and Spaces to Meet. Download an entry form from Knowsley Council’s website and submit your entries before 11 September.

Entries will also be part of the Knowsley Open art exhibition from September this year, while winning images will be on display in the Kirkby Centre later this year.

So, take a photograph of your calm, happy, friendly space and be a part of this exciting new competition!

To enter, you can either:

·         Print off and post your photograph and completed entry form to: Spaces Photography Competition, Knowsley Culture Development & Events Service, Prescot Registry Office, High Street, Prescot, L34 3LD

Or join up and become a member of the project’s Flickr page: www.flickr.com/groups/knowsleyspaces/ and add your photo there. Don’t forget to add your name, artwork title and which category it is being submitted for in the text box that accompanies your photograph.
