This is a new photography competition, open to all.
Do you have a favourite view of Macclesfield, somewhere you stand and enjoy? Perhaps you were born here, and there’s a particular building or street that just feels like home? Or maybe you’ve moved here recently and discovered something special?
Whatever it is, they want to see your ‘new view’ of Macclesfield - it could be a landscape, a building or object, a person or a group of people – the only thing they ask is that there must be some connection with the town and its location.
“This is a really exciting opportunity to showcase local talent and creativity”, says photographer and New View coordinator, Alex Wright of teneight studios “Each photograph will reflect a different perspective and allow us to see the town through someone else’s eyes. And because it’s open to everyone – professionals and non-professionals, adults and children alike – we should see some really interesting and diverse images.”
Your photograph can be a traditional view or something more avant garde – look through magazines, go online, take inspiration from your favourite photographer – but whatever you do have fun shooting a ‘new view’ of Macclesfield.

The loop no longer provides comprehensive listings the way it used to. These are available at www.makeitmacclesfield.co.uk. Instead we will mention things here we think you should know about that have caught our magpie's eye.
