Photography Competitions

Since 2019, Creative Manchester has partnered with the Manchester China Institute to deliver its annual UK-China International Photography Competition, open to anyone resident in the UK or China.

A brief is published for all participants to read, with a new topical theme for each year. For example, following the pandemic, 2022’s competition asked for photos capturing the essence of ‘Home,’ defined uniquely by each respective participant.
