Capture the Cathedral: The People’s Choice

Capture the Cathedral: The People’s Choice

26 August 2016

For the past four years, Manchester Cathedral has organised a photography competition, Capture the Cathedral. Last month Gary Duncan was announced as the overall winner of the competition.

The winning photos and a selection of entries were displayed at Manchester Cathedral and visitors to the cathedral and Facebook followers were invited to vote for their favourite photo during this time.

We are pleased to announce that the winner of the Capture the Cathedral People’s Choice 2016 is ‘Reflecting’ by Sandy Sharples.

On receiving news that her image had been voted the favourite by members of the public, Sandy said:

"I have been taking pictures of Manchester's architecture reflecting in its rain puddles for a while now, and when the announcement came up for this year's Capture the Cathedral competition, I knew I wanted an image of the Cathedral's reflection. Of course I didn't have to wait too long for the rain to come.

The Cathedral is one of my favourite buildings in this city and I am very pleased that my image was not only chosen to be exhibited but that I now also have won the People's Choice award.

Thank you very much. "

The Capture the Cathedral exhibition has proved a great success with our visitors. Whilst the exhibition has been on display, over 1000 votes have been cast.

Congratulations Sandy!
