Prizes for after-hours, my favourite exhibitor, and Festival of Change
The Museums Association (MA) has announced the three winners of the Manchester 2017 Instagram competition, who will receive a year's free membership of the MA.

The winners are Steve Slack for his shot of the Festival of Change interventions, Emma Coleman for her after-hours picture at the Museum of Science and Industry, and Rebecca Baldry for her image of a visitor testing the VR glasses at Rhythm Digital's stand in the exhibition.

Emma Randall, the MA's marketing and sales officer, says: "There were some fantastic images again this year and, as ever, it’s always really hard to pick the winners. We chose these three pictures as we felt they gave a strong impression of the atmosphere at the conference and exhibition.

"Thank you to all those who took part and we look forward to seeing more conference moments captured on Instagram next year at Belfast 2018."
