Surprise St Paul's photo competition shortlist announced

After a wonderful evening of photography inside St Paul's, the short list for the #SurpriseStPauls picture competition can now be revealed.

The brief for the 300 photographers was simple: we were looking especially for images of St Paul’s which are less-seen or noticed - something to surprise us!

Competition organisers faced a tough choice to select 12 images, one of which will now be chosen to be the winner by National Portrait Gallery's outgoing Director, Sandy Nairne.
The winner will enjoy a private behind-the-scenes tour of the Cathedral, dinner at the Grange Hotel's Benihana Restaurant for six people, and will have their picture hung in the newly restored and re-opened Cathedral Chapter House.

And as a bonus, the winner will also be featured on the @London Instagram account, which boasts more than 1.1 million followers.
