We’ve teamed up with the team at Allied London, our friends at Hilton Leeds City Hotel and our favourite Indian restaurant Chandalier by Mumtaz at Leeds Dock to challenge all you keen photographers out there to submit your favourite photographs of the beautiful Leeds Waterways from Thwaites Mill to the stunning city centre locations!
Our judges are looking for images that demonstrate what you love about this fantastic destination….is it the modern architecture, the heritage, the wildlife, the people, the nightlife or perhaps there’s a spot that holds a special place in your heart…whatever inspires you about Leeds Waterfront, we’d love to see your images and of course there are prizes for the winners and runners up in each category!
There are two age categories for this completion, over 16’s and 16 and under and anyone can enter! So if you are an enthusiastic amateur photographer, an instagram addict, professional or just starting out and want to capture your favourite place along Leeds Waterways….get involved!
On 27th June Allied London will be hosting this years Leeds Waterfront Festivals launch party at Leeds Dock and the best images from this competition will be on display in a fantastic exhibition open to the public over festival weekend.

Please note: We would want to reproduce some of the images for the exhibition at Leeds Dock and also have an online gallery of images from the competition and use them on our social media sites. We will not be seeking to profit or take ownership of the images but would want to share them as part of the general publicity for the waterfront festival and will credit all photographers if and when their images are used. If circumstances arose where we would like to reproduce an image for publicity purposes (for example for use on a flyer to advertise next years festival) we would seek permission to use the image from the photographer.
