Photography competition

Friday 8 March to Friday 12 April

From Friday 8 March photography is allowed inside Durham Cathedral.  For more information see our photography policy page.

To celebrate we’re holding a photography competition! Enter as a #child or #adult in a range of different categories: #sacredspaces #stainedglass #shadowsandsunlight #architecturalwonders 

You’ll be in with a chance of winning a family ticket to Open Treasure for up to two adults and up to three children!


To enter please take a photo and post it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the tag #mydurhamcathedral. Don’t forget to include tags with the categories you’re entering – for instance #mydurhamcathedral #adult #sacredspaces

The #child tag should be used for any age up to 18. Entries from those under 13 or for those without access to social media should be submitted via a parent or guardian. 

Submissions will be accepted from Friday 8 March to midnight Friday 12 April 2019.

By entering the competition you give Durham Cathedral permission to retain a copy of your image and license Durham Cathedral indefinitely for promotional use of your image.  We will keep a record of your name and social media handles in order to properly credit you as the photographer of the image, as copyright of any images will rest with the photographer.

Entries will be judged and a child and adult winner of each category chosen after submissions close on midnight 12 April.  The winners will be announced on Wednesday 24 April.  We will contact winners via the social media channel used to enter. If winners don’t respond within seven days we’ll select a different winner and repeat the process.
