Capture a Christian Summer photo competition

A photo competition to celebrate all Christian life, great and small, across our diocese is returning to coincide with the Summer holidays.

“Capture a Christian Summer” is the theme of the fun project, which aims to generate a fantastic gallery of people and places of worship.

It was run for the first time last year and was a great success. Pictures from different contexts across the diocese were submitted, making the final decision for the top three very tricky. 

The competition is open to everyone and the best picture will star on our website and parish newsletter.

Images can be posted either on our Camera Club Facebook page or by emailing the diocesan communications team. 

We want to see lively pictures from any event which has a Christian presence, be that wonderful weddings, village fetes and galas or local shows.

And of course, our diocese is blessed with a huge variety of church architecture, from tiny Dales chapels to grand minsters and our magnificent cathedrals.

When submitting posed images of people, and especially children, on church property, data protection regulations (GDPR) require permission from those featured, or from the parents or guardians of under 18s.

However images taken of adults in public spaces for artistic purposes – such as street or crowd scenes – do not require the permission of all those pictured.

Please send in your pictures, either by joining the Leeds CofE Camera Club closed group Facebook page. The address for the Camera Club on Facebook is: Leeds CofE Camera Club. If you are a new member, please wait for your joining request to be accepted and when posting please use the hashtag #leedscofesummer

Alternatively you can email your images in. Please use the following address and state your name and where the image was taken - communications [at] 
The competition will close on September 1.
