The competition is organised by the Liverpool Chinatown Photographic Society and sponsored by Merseyside Police, Museum of Liverpool and the business community of Liverpool Chinatown.
With spring just round the corner, it’s the perfect time to get creative and take a fresh viewpoint of our beautiful city, the spectacular skyline, heritage and new architectural buildings, River Mersey, ferries, football clubs, cathedrals, bustling street life, local parks and of course, a community full of vibrant and charismatic friends, families or neighbours.
You don’t need any photographic experience or expensive equipment; just a passion for our city and you can use a mobile phone, tablet, digital compact or digital SLR camera.
Wing Wong, Chair of Liverpool Chinatown Photographic Society said: “Our photographic society is committed to engage with local communities to share creative ideas and improve photographic skills. By encouraging young people to identify with their environment through photography will no doubt demonstrate new and exciting fresh viewpoints of their city and community.”
Superintendent Rowley Moore said: “This is an excellent opportunity for young people in Liverpool to showcase their surroundings through the medium of photography. Camera shots allow a young person to convey real feeling through what they see and experience and Merseyside Police is pleased to be associated with this competition”
