It feels as if City Drive 2020 has already started

UPDATE 16/03/20: All City Drive 2020 events cancelled due to the threat posed by Covid-19 — read announcement

At least, that was the case on Thursday afternoon, the 5th of March. Sarah Crawley, our dear friend Ian Cuthbert of Cuthbert Design and myself were busy at iSE — and we were doing something we could all enjoy while still calling it work! We were judging the entries for the Capturing Social Enterprise photography competition.

And it was genuinely hard. I think the quality of the entries surprised all three of us, but we had a terrific time choosing the very best — first, second and third prize-winners and a highly commended category. Had everything gone absolutely to plan there would also have been some lemon drizzle cake to eat along with our tea, but somehow (ask Sarah) this didn’t happen.

Anyway, I was delighted to be asked to help judge this competition and everyone who got out there with their cameras to take part should be congratulated.

The pictures will be on display as part of City Drive week, beginning at the launch event:

CITY DRIVE 2020 Photography Exhibition Launch
6.00pm – 9.00pm
The Good Intent, 32-33 Great Western Arcade, Birmingham B2 5HU

Book for this launch event here

And just to prove we really were hard at it, Ian took some photographs of us in action.
