To celebrate the release of the critically acclaimed and award-winning film Manchester By The Sea, starring Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams and directed by Kenneth Lonergan, we’re launching a unique photography competition.

Inspired by the stunning Massachusetts setting of the film as Lee (Casey Affleck) returns home to Manchester By The Sea, we want you to submit your own photo of your hometown, whether you’re returning home for the festive period or have a memory to share. One lucky winner will receive an annual Picturehouse Membership, a selection of Blu-Rays, including Room and Blue Valentine, and a printout of their submission to own. The winning entry will also be displayed at a variety of different Picturehouse locations across the country. Prizes are also available for two runners-up.

To be in with a chance of winning, entrants must submit their own original photo of their hometown. This must be an outdoors shot with no persons in the image. Eligible entries must be tweeted to @picturehouses with the hashtag #ManchesterByTheSeaPhoto, emailed to manchesterbytheseaphoto@gmail.com, or posted on Instagram by tagging @picturehouses with the hashtag #ManchesterByTheSeaPhoto.

If you’re looking for inspiration, take a look at some stunning stills from the film that has recently been nominated for five Golden Globe® Awards, including Best Motion Picture – Drama and Best Screenplay.
