Welcome to The Faith Through a Lens Photography Competition 2016.
We are looking to find the amateur photographer that best captures the essence of faith.
We are inviting entries from across the UK and giving entrants the chance to take home a fantastic Nikon camera or prize bag for themselves but also to donate superb photography or audio visual equipment worth up to £1,000 to their chosen charity, church or community group.
10 nominated finalists will be invited to an exclusive awards ceremony in London during Inter Faith Week on 16 November 2016 where the winner and highly commended photographers will be announced.
