St Paul’s opens its doors for second Surprise St Paul’s photo competition
09 March 2015
For the first time in its history, St Paul’s will open its doors exclusively to photographers, and ask them to capture something surprising through their lens.
Owing to the success of 2014’s Surprise St Paul’s, which asked people to send in their best and most imaginative images of the outside of the Cathedral, 300 lucky ticket holders will now be able to do the same inside Wren’s great masterpiece.
And for just £10, which will go directly to the Cathedral’s crucial fundraising team, each snapper will be able to submit their best images, with the best winning exclusive prizes, including their winning image going on display in the newly-reopened Cathedral Chapter House.
Surprise St Paul’s 2
Wednesday 8 April 2015
6.15 - 8.30pm
TICKETS ARE NOW SOLD OUT
All entries will be compiled on the Cathedral’s Flickr account and the ultimate winner will be selected by the outgoing Director of the National Portrait Gallery and Chair of the Cathedral’s Fabric Advisory Committee, Sandy Nairne.
Watch a taste of some of the areas winners may see in this Londonist video.
All six people will then head over the road to the Grange Hotel, which boasts fabulous unobstructed views of the Cathedral, where they will enjoy a Traditional Hibachi Dinner or Benihana Specialties Dinner.
The competition comes after St Paul’s launched its brand new online donation system, which offers users the chance to choose what area of Cathedral life to which they would like to donate, whether that be the Cathedral fabric, conservation or choir.
All participants to Surprise St Paul’s 2 will receive information about the fundraising function of St Paul’s, although no entrant is in any way obliged to donate.
The Cathedral wishes to thank Grange St Paul’s Hotel for kindly offering part of the competition prize.
