Photo Competition

Photo Competition


“Keighleygraphic” is an exciting new community development project organised by Keighley Town Council inviting you to share in the creation of a special portrait of our Town.

Local people are invited to submit their favourite photos within three distinct categories:

  • A Postcard from Keighley.

We will be looking for pictures you have taken that show Keighley at its most interesting. 12 pictures will be selected for printing as postcards and money raised from their sale will go to support the Mayor’s Charitable Trust.

  • Keighley Warts and All.

In this category we are looking to capture life as it really is in our Town. Anything goes as long as those taking part stick to the project guidelines.

  • Undiscovered Keighley.

Keighley is a town full of surprises and special hidden places. So, we are encouraging people to look beyond the obvious and take part in a photographic exploration of our town and its unique history.

A panel of community artists and councillors will select the most interesting picture in each of the three categories which will then be professionally printed on high quality paper and framed for their creators to hang on their walls at home.

We are expecting a broad spectrum of contributions which will form the basis of a series of public exhibitions in the Civic Hall and other locations in the town. Those taking part will be invited to a special opening event once lockdown restrictions have been lifted. In the meantime, those same pictures will be displayed in an on-line gallery on the Keighley Town Council web site.

This is a great opportunity for local people of all ages and abilities to get involved in something that will showcase our town and the creative talent of its people.
