Capture the Cathedral Winners 2017

Holy Smoke by Belinda Hastie

07 August 2017

For the past five years, Manchester Cathedral has organised a photography competition, Capture the Cathedral. Every year the standard gets better and better as entrants seek to impress the judges with images of this beautiful historic building. This year was no different; almost 300 images were submitted making the judge’s decision a difficult one.

Entrants were invited to take photographs in three categories: Architecture and Stained Glass, Cathedral at Night and Something Different. The judges chose a winner in each category and an overall winner. The winners are as follows:

Architecture and Stained Glass – High Altar by Tony Davies

Cathedral at Night – Let there be Light and Lasers by Becky Ryding

Something Different – Holy Smoke by Belinda Hastie

We are pleased to announce the Capture the Cathedral Overall Winner for 2017 is Belinda Hastie.

The winning photos and a selection of entries will be on display at Manchester Cathedral until Sunday 3 September. Whilst the exhibition is on display, members of the public are invited to vote for their favourite photo. The photographs are also on the Cathedral Facebook page where online voting is available.
