Citywide photography competition launched in Liverpool

A new photography competition has launched in Liverpool which encourages people to take up walking or cycling as their primary mode of transport for getting around the city.

The public is being invited to send in pictures of Liverpool that can’t be seen from the inside of a car, with the winning entry rewarded with a year’s free subscription to Citybike.

The Liverpool City Council competition is part of The 20 Effect, a campaign designed to support walking and cycling across the city.

On 30 September, The 20 Effect team will put together a shortlist of three photos, and invite people to vote on Twitter for their favourite.

To enter the competition, all you have to do is take a photo of Liverpool that can’t be seen from the inside of a car, and post it on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the #WhereILiverpool hashtag.

Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, Liverpool City Council cabinet member for regeneration and transport, says: “There’s just so much of our city that can’t be seen from the inside of a car, and this is a brilliant way for people to discover and celebrate that aspect of Liverpool.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the photos that people take, and getting the chance to see the city through someone else’s eyes.

“The Citybike team want to encourage everyone to get out there, get snapping, and telling the world that ‘this is our city, and it’s #WhereILiverpool.”
