Photography and Drawing Competition 

 photo competition (2)

We are excited to let you know about a local competition that we are running in order to find 7 images to be included a unique printing of the book of Luke from the Bible.
 
We are printing 1000 copies of the Gospel of Luke that will feature photographs of the local Wisbech town and area as well as some hand drawn pictures by local primary school children.
 
We are looking for 1 photograph for the front cover of the book and an additional 3 photographs for internal pages. All photographs need to be of an area of the town of Wisbech or local surrounding area (please avoid having people in the images as we will need to seek permission from the people for the photograph’s use). You need to have taken the photograph yourself.  We will credit the photographers within the book. We will not be paying for use of the photographs and you will need to agree to allow us to use/print your photograph.
 
We are inviting primary schools to send us colourful, hand drawn pictures by their students (Reception – Year 6) depicting a scene from any story within the Gospel of Luke. Please obtain parental permission for the child to enter the competition before sending us the entries. We are looking to include 3 hand drawn pictures within the book.
 
There is no entry fee.
 
The judges’ decision is final.

their own copy of the book.
