Group Description

Please note that this competition has now closed. The winner has been contacted and will announced shortly. Thank you to everyone who has taken part.

'Endurance: Shackleton’s Antarctic Adventure' tells the incredible tale of Shackleton’s expedition – but it also pays homage to photographer Frank Hurley who dove into icy waters to save his pictures for all to see.

In celebration of this stunning exhibition at the Merseyside Maritime Museum we want you to share your photos of spectacular scenery, unusual locations and far-flung destinations. Just add them to our Flickr group to be in with a chance of winning a great prize!

We’ve teamed up with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic to give you a chance to win tickets to enjoy the spectacular film and music experience, Polar. This cinematic portrait of the Arctic and Antarctic will take you on a magical journey through the homeland of the polar bears and humpback whales. The moving imagery will be accompanied by a live orchestral soundtrack performed by the world-renowned Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

The winner will receive a family ticket for four* to attend the 7.30pm performance on 8 January 2011 at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall** – what a wonderful way to start the year! We’ll also be giving the winner some Shackleton goodies from the Merseyside Maritime Museum shop – details to follow.
