Enter our great Summer Photo Competition - Summer in the City


Capture your favourite moment of summer 2015 and enter it into this year's Liverpool Cathedral Annual Photo Competition.

There’s a great summer in prospect, from a full programme of festivals to simply enjoying all that this great city has to offer visitors and locals alike. This year’s competition encourages all amateur photographers to keep your cameras with you and get snapping what ‘Summer in the City’ represents to you.

All you have to do then is select a favourite image taken in either the Hope Street area or wider city centre, print it in A4 format, fill out the simple application form and send it to Liverpool Cathedral.

All our entries will be on show in this year’s ‘People’s Winner’ public vote and there’s the chance to win fantastic prizes including overnight hotel stays, theatre and exhibition tickets, meals, photographic workshops, tours and trips.

The competition is now open for entries and will run until Tuesday 1st September 2015.
