Photo Competition

Photo by Dimitar Mihaylov – Manchester Day 2016 competition winner


Calling all amateur photographers

Have you got the magic touch with a camera? Then send us your photos of Manchester Day 2017 that best capture the vibrancy, colour and movement of the day and you could win the top prize – a new iPad!

Second prize will be an overnight stay at ABode Manchester with dinner and cocktails at one of the city’s newest venues, Brasserie Abode and a full English breakfast to complete the luxury break.

Set in the heart of the city, only a few minutes’ walk from Piccadilly train station, Victorian architecture blends with 21st century luxury and a relaxed, sophisticated dining experience. The recently opened Brasserie Abode offers a relaxed, all day venue, in the style of a grand European brasserie and bar.

Third prize is a three course meal for two people, with complimentary bottle of Harvey Nichols Champagne, at the Second Floor Bar and Brasserie.
