The City Photo Competition, which celebrates the city of Chelmsford and its surrounding villages will be holding an exhibition in the Meadows Shopping Centre from 12th – 25th October as part of Future City.
The annual competition captures all aspects of city life both urban and rural, and this year there are three categories: over-16, under-16 and photos from Instagram.
Although an awards ceremony won’t be possible this year, a video of the winning entries and interviews with the judges will be released at the end of the month to announce the winners. This year’s judges include: Deputy Leader of Chelmsford City Council, Cllr Marie Goldman, The Mayor of Chelmsford, Blue Sky Printing, Unshaken Photography, The Meadows and Essex Chronicle.
New for 2020 – you are invited to vote for your very own City Photo WINNER, sponsored by Blue Sky Printing and Unshaken Digital Photography Training. To vote, check out the Exhibition between 12 – 25 Oct at Meadows or visit www.chelmsford.gov.uk/photocomp for further details.

This year’s competition is part of Essex 2020, in association with Meadows Shopping Centre, Blue Sky Printing and the Essex Chronicle.
A selection of entries that capture the zeitgeist of 2020 will also be included in a time capsule being curated by the Mayor of Chelmsford and you can start taking photos now ready for next year – photos captured between 1 September 2020 and 31 August 2021 will be eligible.
