Back by popular demand is our annual photo competition with great prizes to be won! Whether it’s an action shot of a live music event or you’ve grabbed a snap of some lively audience members, Worcester Music Festival is inviting photographers of all ages and abilities to submit to the contest and show us what you’ve been up to over the 2023 festival weekend.

A £100 voucher is up for grabs, plus prizes for second and third place as well.

The competition will be judged by a panel of music photographers and we are delighted to welcome back Steve Johnston, James Watkins and Andy Burton.

Entries will be whittled down to a Top 20 ahead of the Top 3 being announced at the awards ceremony in October 2023.
