The visit by the giant Man Engine to Liskeard on 26th July will be a unique event. The Cornish Times has linked up with the organisers to host a photographic competition of the event. You could capture a winning photo of the giant mechanical puppet when he visits Liskeard.

The theme of the competition will be 'The Spirit of the Man Engine in Liskeard'. You may enter as many photographs as you wish, but your picture should show something of Liskeard and the fun and excitement of the mechanical giant during his visit to The Parade from midday on Tuesday 26th July. The best photograph will be featured in the Cornish Times, together with the winner's name.

There will be plenty of scope to find an amusing subject, an unusual angle, or an intriguing viewpoint. Artists and storytellers will be circulating around the town to mark the arrival of the colossal puppet in Liskeard, the first Cornish town of his journey through to the west. Miners and 'bal-maidens' (female surface workers, who used to sort the miners' ore) will be encouraging the Man Engine to steam and hiss. Singers and musicians will be encouraging the puppet to transform into a giant miner, nearly the height of three double decker buses. Shopkeepers will be dressing their shops and cafes for the event, so there should be plenty of scope to record this unrepeatable event for posterity.

There will also be the chance to try the famous Liskeard Bun, some special pasties and a Proper Cakey Tea.

Details of how to enter the photographic competition will be given in the Cornish Times on Friday 22nd July.
