Are you a budding photographer?
Amateur photographers are encouraged to enter the 2016 Faith Through a Lens national photo competition which awards for the best images on the subject of ‘faith’.
Faith plays a positive role in many peoples' lives and this competition encourages people from all backgrounds and beliefs to engage with the subject of faith in its wider context.
Whether it’s showing compassion, capturing a precious moment or supporting a community, we’re looking to uncover personal experiences which can be shared through the medium of photography say the competition organisers, Congregational Insurance.
The judging panel is led by renowned photographer and photojournalist Don McCullin. The prizes include Nikon camera camera or prize bag for themselves but also to donate superb photography or audio visual equipment worth up to £1,000 to their chosen charity.
10 nominated finalists will be invited to an exclusive awards ceremony in London during Inter Faith Week on 16 November 2016 where the winner and highly commended photographers will be announced.
