Lincoln Cathedral has long inspired all who visit it, and this September, we’re challenging you to let your creativity shine through and share your images in our photography competition.

 

It’s open to all ages, and prizes will be awarded in two categories; ages 5 to 16 years, and 17+ years of age.

Every week in September there’ll be a different theme:

Monday 7th – Sunday 13th September: My Family in Lincoln Cathedral
Monday 14th – Sunday 20th September: My favourite part of Lincoln Cathedral
Monday 21st – Sunday 27th September: Creatures in the Cathedral
Monday 28th – Sunday 4th October: Light in Lincoln Cathedral

Each week one lucky winner in each age category will be awarded a prize of a £20 gift voucher for Lincoln Cathedral Shop, and a selection of the best entries will be displayed in the Cathedral and across our social media.

To enter, all you need to do is take your pictures in Lincoln Cathedral and email them to events@lincolncathedral.com. Make sure you include your name, age and the date the photograph was taken. Please read the terms and conditions below before entering.
