The Church at the Heart of the Island

A welcome addition to the IWPOY this year and for a limited period only, 15th April – 27th May 2009, is the Newport Minster Photo Competition entitled “Church at The Heart of The Island“.  As part of the Minster Renewal Campaign photographers both young and old are being invited to get their cameras out to capture the essence of the Minster formerly (St Thomas’ Newport).

The Island, a popular tourist destination, will host a fabulous exhibition within the Minster throughout the summer months displaying 50 of the best shortlisted images for both vistors and Islanders alike.

Those photographers lucky enough to be selected will, as always, retain copyright to their images and be visibly credited. The overall winning photographer will be featured in the Minster Campaign promotional materials and receive a framed print of their winning image.  The under 16 winner will also go on assignment with an IW County Press Photographer.

Don’t delay on uploading your images as this is only a short six week competition. For full details please check-out the competition category rules and criteria HERE.

We look forward to seeing your photographs and Good luck!
