Relaxing in the city, by Joy Nightingale

To celebrate the visit of three famous Queens: Mary II, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria,  we are continuing our call for photographers to submit their images celebrating Women in the City, to showcase in our online gallery. From female photographers, to images of the women we admire;shots of majestic liners and Grandmothers entertaining the young, let your imagination run wild, capture and share your moments in Liverpool.

Submit your images to the online gallery below.

LOOK/15 is the north’s premier photographic festival and one of only a handful in the UK, delivering engaging events and mass-participation activities to hundreds of thousands of people and this year forms part of the One Magnificent City programme of events.

Liverpool has a rich history of women with interesting stories, not just its visiting Queens – Florence Nightingale, Eleanor Rathbone, Margaret Chambre Hardman, Bessie Braddock, Cilla Black, April Ashley and Kim Cattrall have all had their impacts on the city and many more have played vital roles. Some less famous city women have been depicted in the media previously, such as the dock side flower workers, the mothers, wives and siblings of fallen heroes and the emerging talents of stage and screen; many grace the waterfront (The Three Graces, Speed – the Modern Mercury and the Lady Liver Bird herself, guiding in her sailors) and are walked past by thousands of people daily. Now it is your turn to shine a light on these women and those that you know.


In partnership with Culture Liverpool and Liverpool ONE we are running a two stage competition. Stage One will celebrate women and the city and give the Queens something to look at. Stage Two will document their visit.

Submission closes on 27th May at Midnight.
