We are running a new competition to showcase the many wonderful images, paintings and drawings you have of Southwell Minster – but there’s a catch, the theme is ‘Christmas’. Your submissions can be any media you like, e.g. photographs, paintings, drawings, artwork – in fact anything as long as it’s on the theme of Southwell Minster at Christmas. The winning entry will then be used as the official image for the Minster’s 2023 Christmas Card.


– 1st prize: Your image used for Southwell Minster’s 2023 Christmas Card, with a credit printed on the back, a new Southwell Minster bauble and 2 packs of Christmas cards featuring your image (packs of 10)

– 2 runners up prizes: A new Southwell Minster bauble
