Do you ever stop in the street, take a look around, and realise just how stunning our city is? Maybe it’s the awe-inspiring gothic magnitude of the Anglican, the faded marble facades above the shops on Bold Street or the breathtaking view of the city from Everton Park? Or just the Mersey ferry rolling by. Whatever floats your boat.
Well, we certainly get struck by the beauty of our city’s streets. Only not enough. It’s time we really embrace that, and that’s why we want everyone to get their phones out, point them at nice things, and get involved in the #WhereILiverpool competition. There’s the chance to win a year’s free membership to citybike, plus plenty of other brilliant treats up for grabs.
Over the past few months, we’ve been working on Liverpool’s The 20 Effect campaign. The team have been encouraging everyone living near Liverpool city centre to get walking and cycling more, rather than relying on cars to get from A to B. There’s so much of the city that you just can’t appreciate from inside a car, and that’s why we want everyone to put their best photos of the city taken on a walk or a cycle up on to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, using the #WhereILiverpool hashtag.
To really get noticed, you can tag The 20 Effect in, using @The20Effect handle. They’ll be sharing their favourites and the best photos will get some pretty special prizes.
The winner will receive a year’s free use of citybike, an Independent Liverpool card and a printed and framed copy of their winning photo. Two runners-up will get a card and their photo printed and framed.
To enter, all you have to do is show us a side of Liverpool we perhaps haven’t seen before, or something familiar at a new angle – something or somewhere that strikes you.
It doesn’t have to be anything incredible – just anything interesting you see on your cycle to work or your walk to the shops. The competition will run until Friday 30th September, and the prizes will be announced the week after.
So get out there and get snapping: Let everyone know that this city is gorgeous and it’s #WhereILiverpool.
