We’ve been going through some pretty remarkable times this year, and West End Morecambe Big Local (WEM) has decided to try and capture just a bit of it with the help of a photography competition, something we hope that everyone, young or old, might be able to take part in. The competition is called ‘West End 2020 Vision’ and will be open to anyone who lives, works or has visited Morecambe’s West End.
We are looking for any photos that capture an aspect of life during the time of the Covid-19 crisis so far, or in the coming months. It can be of absolutely anything, a little moment or a big feeling but something that reminds you, and hopefully us, of these strange times. It might be arty, thoughtful, family, funny, landscape, portrait, a sign of hope or a hoard of toilet rolls! It can be serious or funny and anything in between. All you need to do is submit a photograph you have taken and add a few details.
We will pick some of the best entries each month to put up on our website and in our future newsletters and every three months, we will pick a winner who will receive a prize of £50.
So have a look at what photos you might have already taken in 2020 or start snapping away now with your grandad’s old box-brownie, an expensive SLR, a holiday camera or your mobile phone.
