Over the summer lots of people entered our Merseystyle photography competition. As exhibition curator Sharon Brown reports, choosing the winners was a tough job for our judges:
“The exhibition Merseystyle: Photographs by the Caravan Gallery has proved very popular since it opened in the Skylight Gallery at the Museum of Liverpool on 10 May 2013.
As part of the exhibition we ran a photography competition, open to all. We asked people to send in a photograph that reflected a unique and personal view of their neighbourhood in Liverpool or Wirral, using the Caravan Gallery’s unique style as a guide.
We received a fabulous 357 entries. But who would our five winners be?
On the afternoon of Thursday 5th September the judging panel, Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale (The Caravan Gallery), Patrick Henry (Liverpool International Photography Festival) and Janet Dugdale (Director, Museum of Liverpool) spent several hours looking at all the entries. They whittled them down to the top 50, then the top 20… then, the final five were chosen.
The winners have now been notified and their photographs will be framed and go on show in the Merseystyle exhibition from 23 September until the end of the exhibition on 27 October.
The winning photographs are:
- ‘Hung out to dry’ by James Malone
- ‘Fountain Fun’ by Cassie Hodge
- ‘Fag break’ by Richard Cooper
- ‘Roundabout – The Grand National, Aintree’ by Adam Akins
- ‘Park Services’ by Pete Carr
You can see an online gallery of the competition entries on the website, and do come and see the winners on the wall next week.”
