Engaging diverse audiences & encouraging conversations around 



Flow Photo is a new national photographic competition. For 2018, a panel of selectors have chosen works for a touring exhibition:

30 March - 30 May 2019 at the National Waterways Museum, Ellesmere Port, Liverpool

6 June - 13 July 2019 at the NATIONAL WATERWAYS MUSEUM, Gloucester

The project aims to raise awareness and encourage debate about water and waterways in all aspects as seen through the photographer and film-maker’s lens. The ethos behind the project is to encourage people to consider and document how water makes them feel and will promote the therapeutic effects that water, canals and rivers can have.

Flow Photo celebrates the best in contemporary documentary photography and film-making linked to the identified themes, in a contemporary and inspiring way. It will inspire new generations in the UK and worldwide to learn more about the waterways of the UK and to encourage use of documentary photography and film-making for a wide range of potential users, from school children to ambitious artists.

Flow Photo is sponsored by The Future Water Association and supported by the Canal & River Trust and produced by Parker Harris
