Sunset photography competition

Sunset photography competition

Whether you’re a professional photographer or you’ve got a great eye with a camera phone, the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool has partnered up with Liverpool Echo for the ultimate photography competition. 

There’s no better place than the dock to capture golden hour, with autumnal evenings bringing some of the most spectacular sunsets in the city to the waterfront. Catch the last of the evening’s rays from one of the restaurants with the dusty pink backdrop of the three graces, or when strolling across the bridge next to Revolution to snap the sunset reflecting from the water; there’s an array of scenic spots to choose from. 

For your chance to win the perfect autumn evening at the dock complete with sundowner cocktails, dinner, an overnight stay at Holiday Inn Express, plus a gift voucher for the latest camera equipment, we want to see your best sunset photographs of Liverpool’s historic Royal Albert Dock at twilight.

The competition will run from 23rd October – 6th November, and will be judged with the Liverpool Echo’s professional photographer, Colin Lane, and the dock’s Estate Manager, Sean Morrison.
