Parish Pixels – show us what makes your church special

10 June 2019

This year, our church competition celebrates churches across the UK through photography. However, it is far from a photography competition!

Taking photo of church

How to enter

To enter the competition

Alternatively, you can print the entry form, complete it by hand, and post it together with your photo to: FREEPOST ECCLESIASTICAL (you don’t need to write anything else on the envelope or use a stamp).

Don’t forget to ask permission of anyone featured in the photograph, as well as the photographer’s permission to use the photograph. You should make sure everyone involved has read and agreed to the terms and conditions.

The closing date for entries is 31 October 2019.


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.


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.

The overall winning church will receive £5,000!
