To celebrate world photography day we are excited to announce a brand new competition! Will you be the first CATCH photographer of the year?
This year’s theme – “A moment in industry”
This year CATCH have launched their first digital photographic competition, designed to showcase and capture on camera the diversity of the people in industry across the Yorkshire & Humber regions. The focus of our first competition is people, and as such the winner will be announced at our people awards ceremony on the 24th September 2020.
The winning photographer will receive a hamper of local goods, and their image will be printed, framed and put on display at the CATCH site. The winning image plus three runners up will be publicised across our website and social channels, plus published in our 2021 Awards Dinner Brochure. The winning image and finalist will also be printed in the Grimsby Telegraph.
