Only one week left to enter the Capture the Cathedral competition!

Published: 01 May 2015

Following the success of last year’s competition we are pleased to announce that this year's photography competition, Capture the Cathedral, is now open!
We are inviting photographers of all ages to capture the Cathedral, with all its nooks and crannies, in different and imaginative ways. The competition will close on Friday 8 May.


The categories in the photography competition are:

• Architecture and Stained Glass

• Something Different
This photograph can be of anything inside or outside the Cathedral. We are looking for a photograph that is unusual for whatever reason.

• The Cathedral at Night

One winner will be chosen in each category by a panel of judges, including MEN photographer, Matt Ratcliffe and BBC Radio Manchester presenter, Mike Shaft. The judging panel will also select an overall winner who will be ‘The Official Photographer for Manchester Cathedral 2015’. The overall winner will be invited to photograph events at the Cathedral.

The overall winner will receive one night’s accommodation with bed and breakfast for two sponsored by the Renaissance Manchester and a meal for two sponsored by the Hard Rock Café Manchester.

A selection of entries will be exhibited in the Cathedral from Saturday 13 June to Sunday 12 July 2015. The winners will be announced at the Capture the Cathedral Exhibition Launch on Friday 12 June. During the exhibition members of the public will be given the opportunity to vote for their favourite photo.

So why not come and see if you can Capture the Cathedral?
