West End Morecambe Big Local

Photography Competition

UPDATE 28/06/21:


The WEM Partnership met in early June 2021 to review the entries and the winner of the photo competition and were delighted with all of the entries submitted. After careful deliberation, it was felt that Wayne Drinkwater’s photograph “Untitled”, which he captioned as “2020, West End, and promenade start of the second lockdown 5th of November” perfectly captured a sense of hopefulness emerging above the gloom, and was chosen as the winner. Wayne will receive the prize of £50.

Entry no. 4 "Untitled": 2020 westend, and promenade start of the second lock down 5th of November...
