space_2_competition_knowsleyIf you’re a budding photographer who lives, works, volunteers or studies in Knowsley then why not get involved with the Spaces 2 competition and take a winning image of a person or place that makes you feel good?

This is the second year of Knowsley Council’s wellbeing photography competition – Spaces, which last year saw hundreds of amazing images being submitted.

The idea of Spaces 2 is to take a compelling image of somewhere in Knowsley, or someone, that is important to you. If could be somewhere you go to relax, a place that holds happy memories, or a person who you admire or makes you feel good. It might even be a ‘selfie’ – what it is of, is up to you!

Free photography workshops

If you’re interested in taking part in Spaces 2 but would like a little help with your photography you can even take part in free photography workshops being offered by Knowsley Council’s Culture Development and Events Service, in partnership with Knowsley Family and Community Education (FACE).

The sessions are for over-16s only and are free. They take place in Kirkby Gallery (within the Kirkby Centre, Newtown Gardens) and are taking place on Wednesday 20 July (1-4pm) and Thursday 21 July (1-4pm).

To book your place on the workshops, email knowsleygallerybookings@gmail.com or call Tina Ball on 0151 443 5617.
