‘Your Heritage’  Photographic Competition 2012

‘Your Heritage’ Photographic Competition 2012

Supported by Middlewich Town Council


The environment in which we live and work in has been shaped by our ancestors for thousands of years. Cheshire is a landscape steeped in history; it has been an industrial and agricultural land with established route-ways dating back to the Iron Age and engineered waterways from the Industrial Revolution. Each part of Cheshire is distinctive and unique.

Brief: To capture an image of Cheshire, exploring the landscape both natural & worked and historic built environment. For 2012 we are introducing a new ‘general’ category that will allow more scope in terms of having a prize winning photograph that does not fit into an existing category.

This exciting opportunity exists for young budding photographers, enthusiastic amateurs and semi– professional photographers to take part in the Annual ‘Your Heritage’ exhibition. All winners and finalists from each category will be displayed at the Folk and Boat Festival on 16th and 17th June 2012.



Exploring the past can often be the key to the future.
