2018 Winner & Shortlist


Congratulations to our 2018 winner, Andy Allchurch!

Speaking of his win with his entry ‘Do Not Feed The Gulls’, taken in Liverpool, he said:

“It’s all a bit surreal, but it’s amazing to have won. My intention was just to get a photograph of the man who looked slightly strange feeding these seagulls so much bread. As I went to take the photo the seagull flew past his face, with its faced stuffed. In all honesty, it was a complete fluke, which is an aspect I really like about street photography. But it’s a beautiful fluke! I love that the image is a bit of fun too – kind of channelling that Scouser sense of humour.”

Andy entered the competition after seeing MyTown promoted on Clear Channel screen, and his image will join all other shortlisted images featured as part of the UK’s biggest outdoor exhibition of street photography. He was also rewarded with a FujifilmX100F premium compact camera, which he received at the MyTown pop-up, and a UK city break of his choosing.
