Photography competition – be part of our exhibition!

The print shows two Stevedores standing inactive at the Albert Docks, Liverpool (a stevedore is someone who is employed in the loading or unloading of ships). In the middle distance a ship is moored. This image was also reproduced as a postcard.

Could you be the next Edward Chambré Hardman? Our current On the Waterfront exhibition in the Quayside Gallery explores significant changes on Liverpool’s waterfront. Our visitors to the Merseyside Maritime Museum and the Albert Dock are part of that story, and we’d like to include you in this exhibition too!

We’d love you to share up to three photographs of Liverpool’s waterfront and how it has changed, on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #waterfront300. You can also enter on our website before midnight on Sunday 17 April 2016.

The winning photograph, as chosen by our panel of judges, will be displayed in the exhibition from 20 May until 19 June 2016.

Check out some of the entries we’ve had so far in our gallery:

Good luck!
