newcityoldcity - Making the City of the Future

Calling all photographers, budding and experienced!

Our competition is looking for photographs of inspirational new workplace buildings that complement an old city setting, taken in any historic city.

The winning photos in this free competition will be displayed as part of a public exhibition in central Bath in the autumn, and the winners in each age group will also receive a framed print of their image.

We have started transforming the Avon Street carpark area into Bath Quays - Bath’s new business district. It will provide new workspaces for a range of businesses, as well as new shops and cafes. A new waterfront park is nearly completed, and a stunning bridge will be coming soon.

We are looking for photographs showing great new workplaces that inspire not only the people that work there, but also locals and visitors.

How to enter

Please send your photos, stating the location of the building shown, using the hashtag   #newcityoldcity

Entries must be received by 23:59 BST on Sunday 3 September 2017.

A selection of the images will be posted on this website. The winning photos will be chosen on 8 September.
