Friends of Alexandra Park Photography Competition

Get snapping in Manchester's premier city park. Here’s your chance to win the title of Alexandra Park Amateur Photographer of the Year, and to win the overall winner’s prize of £50! 

The 2018 Friends of Alexandra Park Photography Completion is now open. 

This year’s theme is ‘The Four Seasons’ and we’re looking for photographs taken in Alexandra Park that fall into one of the four categories below that capture the spirit of the park. The categories are:

  • Spring
  • Summer
  • Autumn
  • Winter

Pictures submitted must have been taken by you, so no historic archive shots, but can include aspects of the wildlife, history, general views, family memories and sports and community events that have taken place in Alexandra Park either since the restoration, or at any time in the past.

The prize: The category winners will feature in our 2019 Friends' Calendar - with the overall winning photo taking pride of place on the front cover as well as receiving the cash prize. The winning photos will also form an exhibition in the park's pavilion.

Submit your entries below

You can submit up to four photographs which must have been taken by you, but each one can only be entered into one of the categories listed above, so don’t forget to select a category for each image along with your name, email and contact telephone number. Closing date for entries is 31st August 2018. Winners will be announced on 30th September 2018.


Please note that the competition is open to amateur photographers only.
