A new theatre photography competition has been launched, backed by choreographer Matthew Bourne and actor Jude Law.
The competition is being run by the Theatres Trust to celebrate theatre venues in the UK.
Theatre Photograph of the Year will be judged across three separate categories, which highlight the architecture, community and experience of theatres, in addition to an overall winner of the competition.
Ambassadors for Theatres Trust include Bourne, Law, and comedian and actor Miranda Hart, who will be part of the judging panel.
Hart said: “Theatre continues to transform me into a childlike state of awe and wonder and I am never freer and happier watching it or making it.
“So to have the Theatres Trust Photograph of the Year competition as a way to find great talent to capture, curate and celebrate the majesty that is theatre is a wonderful thing. It will be hard not to want to pick them all.”
The competition is open to amateur and professional photographers, and includes a separate category for the Young Photographer of the Year prize.
Theatre Tokens will provide £250 worth of vouchers for each category winner.
Judging will take place in April and the winners will be announced later in 2020.
