Capture the Cathedral: The Results

Capture the Cathedral: The Results

The Capture the Cathedral photography competition is now in its fourth year and this year’s competition was a great success. Over 200 photographs were submitted and the standard was excellent, making the judges’ role very difficult!

The overall winner of Capture the Cathedral 2016 is Gary Duncan.

A selection of photographs, including the winning entries, will be on display in the Cathedral until Wednesday 24 August. Whilst the exhibition is on display, members of the public are invited to vote for their favourite photo. Once the results have been collated, the Cathedral will announce the People’s Choice winner!

If you would like to vote for your favourite via our Facebook page, add the word vote to the comment section.

Thank you to everyone who entered this year’s competition.

Tours and access to some areas will be restricted, but our doors will remain open and services and events will continue uninterrupted.
