Competition aimed at focusing on life across the Diocese

A competition to find the best images for a Diocese of Derby 2013 Calendar has just been launched.

The Calendar is being produced in aid of the Bishop of Derby’s Harvest Appeal which this year will support the Mothers’ Union Parenting Programme in Rwanda.

The theme of the photograph competition is ‘Churches 4 Communities’. It will be judged in six categories: celebration, smile, church wildlife and landscape, church people, history and in all weathers.

The two best photos in each category will appear in the Calendar and all entrants will be invited to attend an exhibition of the winning photographs at the Harvest Appeal launch in July.

Photos must have been taken within the last year in the Diocese, which covers over 997 square miles and has a population of more than one million.

The closing date for the competition is Sunday July 1.
