Visitors to a new photography exhibition in the Peterborough Cathedral Visitor Centre are invited to vote for their favourite picture. The votes will be counted at the end of the exhibition and the photographers whose pictures receive the highest number of votes will win a prize.
The exhibition shows around 20 images shortlisted by judges in the recent “Peterborough Cathedral at Night” photography competition. Over 50 amateur photographers entered the competition, many of whom had taken their pictures during a special candlelit evening held at the Cathedral during October. In all nearly 130 images were submitted.
The judging panel, which included Peterborough Telegraph Editor, Mark Edwards, the artist Tony Nero and the photographer Matthew Roberts, as well as Cathedral representatives, were very impressed with the high standard of the entries. They had to make some difficult decisions in coming to their final selection, which includes both interior and exterior shots, as well as some unusual views spotted by the photographers.
The exhibition is on show until 6th January 2017 and entry is free of charge. It is open daily from 10.00am to 4.00pm on Monday to Saturday and from 11.00am to 4.00pm on Sundays (closed on Bank Holidays). The Cathedral Visitor Centre is on the right as you face the Cathedral. Prints of photographs in the exhibition are on sale at £15 each.
The photography competition is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
