Calling all photographers!

Cambridge Museum of Technology and Cambridge Industrial Archaeology Society are running a photo competition.

We are looking for photographs that show the beauty, interest, or quirkiness of:

  • Cambridgeshire industrial heritage

  • The museum

The competition is open to photographers of all abilities in the following categories:

The judges are looking for good composition and creativity. A winner will be selected for each subject from each age category. From these, an overall winner will also be chosen. The winners will be announced on 17th November 2017.

Each winner will receive a free pass to the museum and their photograph displayed on the museum’s website. The overall winner will have their photograph displayed on the homepage of the museum’s website and will receive the grand prize of a private trip down the Cam on the open-sided narrow boat Rosie (with Camboats) for up to 12 people.
