Maguire Family Law launches ‘Capturing Altrincham’ photography competition this weekend 

This spring and summer, our client and local business Maguire Family Law is bringing a community-wide, inclusive photography competition to the people of Altrincham, Bowdon and Hale. They want to encourage our thriving community to get out and about and capture images of the wonderful area where we live, work and study. Maguire hopes the competition will bring everyone together, encourage as many as possible to take part and really celebrate this stunning slice of South Manchester. 

Anyone who enters is in with a chance of winning £750 for first place, £250 for second and dinner for two in a local restaurant for third place. 

All ages are welcome, and the photo can be of anything, as long as it represents this area in some way — whether that’s the people, the natural environment, landmarks or local wildlife. 

Any camera will do — even your phone. Just make sure it’s a good quality image, as the final shortlisted images will be printed out and blown up later in the year. 

The shortlist will also be displayed in a local exhibition, and the winning photographs will be revealed at a special event in September. The event will include a charity raffle and the chance to buy prints of the shortlisted images. All money raised will be donated to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. 

James, the managing director, is also an award-winning photographer. He is hoping that the competition will allow him to meet other keen local photographers and possibly share a few tips along the way.
