Parish Pixels

01 November 2019

Entries for our church competition are now closed but you can still help!

Taking photo of church

This year, our church competition celebrates churches across the UK through photography. We know that every church, its congregation and community, is unique. From beautiful flower gardens, to the exceptional architecture of your church building - no two churches are the same and we want to celebrate what makes your church special.

Our entry period for nominations has now closed

A huge thank you to the numerous Anglican churches up and down the country who entered our Parish Pixels competition. The closing date for entries has now passed, which leaves us with the very difficult job of processing your wonderful entries for regional judging.

Have a sneak peek

Take a look at our interactive map below to see just a small selection of the wonderful entries we’ve received.

What our judges are looking for

Our judges will assess your photo based on: 

  • Its visual impact
  • Originality of the photo
  • Your interpretation of the theme.
But you can help! Once the regional winners have been chosen, we will be launching our ‘show your support’ poll where you can cast your vote for your favourite entry. This will then support the judges in making their final decision for the national winner.


The competition is broken into two stages, and we will have 9 regional winning churches and 1 overall winning church.

Regional winning churches

The 9 regional winning churches will be determined by a judging panel, including representatives from each region, and will be announced before 29 February 2020. Each winning church will receive £1,500! 

Once the judges have made their decision, we will contact each of the winning churches via the information provided on the entry form. We will then announce the winners on this website page, in our monthly e-news and on social media. 
The regions are as defined in our terms and conditions
The overall winning church

The overall winning church will be chosen from the 9 regional winning churches, and will be determined by a public vote as well as a judging panel. Representatives from each of the regional winning churches will be invited to attend a celebratory lunch in October 2020, where the overall winner will be announced. This overall winning church will receive an additional £5,000 prize money.
