Best of Birmingham photography to be showcased

Birmingham's most loved and iconic places which have been captured by budding local photographers will be revealed next months in a new photography exhibition. 

Winners of a city-wide photography competition will see their work on displayfrom November 10 at the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter. 

The Best of Birmingham competition, which was launched by popular online group Instagramers of Birmingham, Brumpic and Birmingham Museums Trust, asked local people to photograph the very best of what the city has to offer. The competition, which ran throughout the summer, has also seen support from Trevor Beattie and The Jack and Ada Beattie Foundation. 

An impressive 25 images have been chosen to feature in the exhibition, with winners including Ella Mullins, Kris Askey and Tim Cornbill, who was crowned winner at the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards in the open architecture category and was also named the UK national winner. 

However, the overall winner is 18 year old photographer Sam McAuliffe from Erdington with his beautiful image of the Birmingham canals with The Cube in the background. As winner, Sam will see the image used on all marketing materials for the exhibition. 

The images that will be on display at the exhibition include Birmingham people, culture and buildings, including pictures from within the iconic Birmingham markets, Clent Hills, Digbeth and at Sarehole Mill. The pictures will be framed and displayed at the free exhibition, along with 25 highly commended images which will be shown digitally for the first week. 

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to buy image prints too. 

Beth Asington of IGers Birmingham, said: "We are incredibly excited about this project and collaborating with Birmingham Museums Trust. The entries were of extremely high standard which is testament to the talent with the IGers Birmingham community." 

The Best of Birmingham exhibition will take place at the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter from Friday November 10 until Monday January 29, 2018.
