News & Events





Centre Space Spode is proud to announce that for a second successful year, we will be hosting the Keele 3 Counties Photography Open.




This year we have 3 open photography categories:

– Composite: This may include manipulation, layers (digital/analogue), etc.

– Still Life: It’s about the composition of the image and what is contained within it.

– Environment: This could be a range of things from inside your house to urban / Countryside landscape, it’s entirely up to you.

We would like to invite photographers to show a representation of these themes through their lens. What is your take on these subjects? Be open and expressive, don’t be afraid to capture what you feel.


3 overall Prizes Sponsored By Keele University

1st Prize – £250

2nd Prize – £150

3rd Prize – £50

The People’s Vote

The peoples vote winner will be sponsored by Centre Space Gallery and 1st Imaging, Newcastle Under-Lyme.
