I am writing to advise you of Ecclesiastical’s competition, where one Anglican church in your region will win a prize of £1,500 and also be in with a chance of winning a further £5,000!
There are 9 regions involved, which represent the 7 regional areas of the church of England, plus Scotland and Wales. We have regionalised the Dioceses as per the attached document.
Our competition launched in June, and we’ve asked churches to send us just one photo and one sentence that shows how special and unique their church is. We hope to engage as many churches as possible from across the UK to show just how wonderful and irreplaceable each and every church and congregation is.
The competition will be judged in two stages, the first of which will be on a regional basis and involve regional judges, and the second will involve a public vote and national judging panel to choose the overall winner from each of the nine regional winners.
All the regional winners will be invited to send representatives from their church to a celebratory event in October 2020 where we will announce the overall winner as well as showcasing the wonderful photographs entered into the competition.
How your region can get involved
We would like to invite two representatives from your region to be part of your regional judging panel. Our team will review the entries and send you a selection of the best ones from your region according to our judging criteria by mid-October 2019. From this the regional judges will then, along with a representative from Ecclesiastical, decide on the winning entry from your region before mid-January 2020.
Once all the regional judging is complete, we will announce the winners before the end of February 2020, and give each region a donation of £500 to be used towards a celebratory event for your local winner. We will also send a representative from Ecclesiastical to your event and present the winning church with their prize money of £1,500.
How churches can get involved
All the information about the competition, including the downloadable entry form, full terms and conditions and posters, is available on our website at www.ecclesiastical.com/parishpixels. For ease, a copy of each of these are also attached to this email. We will be communicating the competition to as many churches as we can via Facebook and Twitter, etc. However, if you’d like to share with churches in your region you may wish to use the enclosed poster. Should you require more copies please let us know and we can email or post them to you.
