Thank you for all your entries. Exhibition curator Betty Yao chose the photograph above by Lee Carus as the winning entry; Lee won a banquet meal for two at Yuet Ben. Two runners-up each won a copy of the exhibition catalogue. Read more about the winning entrants on the blog.

Competition entrants were invited to submit their photos of Liverpool's Chinatown or other images which represent something meaningful about Chinese culture in the city of Liverpool to our Liverpool's Chinatown through the lens group on Flickr.

These included, for example, photos of Liverpool's Chinese arch, the Chinese New Year celebrations, buildings, people, or even a local restaurant!


After the closing date of 24 May 2010 exhibition curator Betty Yao chose her favourite photos submitted to the pool with the best photo winning a banquet meal for two with wine at Liverpool's longest-established Chinese restaurant, Yuet Ben, serving "unusual and authentic dishes alongside the best crispy duck on Merseyside" (The Independent). Two runners-up each received a copy of the 'China through the lens of John Thomson 1868-1872' exhibition catalogue.

During the course of the competition we featured some of our favourite photos from this pool on the National Museums Liverpool blog and the winning photo has been featured on the blog and here on the website. Have a look at the photos that were featured on the blog.
