Photographer John Aitken to choose winning shot

A University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) lecturer has been announced as the judge of the Miller Homes community photography competition.

John Aitken, Course Leader in photography at UCLan, will choose the winning shot from an array of images sent in from across the North West.

Miller Homes, which has been building award winning homes for more than 80 years, launched the competition last month and is encouraging people from across the North West to submit a photo they have taken which encapsulates all that is great about the area in which they live.

John said: “I was thrilled to be asked to judge the competition. Photography is my livelihood and my passion, so it’s great to be involved in something that supports budding photographers across the North West.”

If you are a budding photographer then there is still time to enter the competition. Entries should be sent to millerhomesphotocomp@miller.co.uk with a sentence or two giving context to their photo; once received photos will be published on Miller Homes’ social media channels. Deadline for entries is 26 October, after which time judging will take place and winners notified.

A winner will be selected from each of the housebuilder’s six regions (Scotland, North East, North West, Yorkshire, Midlands, Southern) and then from these winners an overall national winner will be selected. Regional winners will each receive a £50 Amazon voucher plus the opportunity to have their photo framed and displayed in their nearest Miller Homes development; and on top of this the overall winner will receive a gift voucher for a one-day photography course as well as a framed copy of their photograph.

Samantha Johnson, Regional Sales Manager for Miller Homes North West, comments: “There are some brilliant locations in the North West and we’re thrilled to be encouraging the community to get involved and capture some of the beautiful sights that are right on their doorstep. We’re looking forward to receiving all entries and wish people the best of luck.
