Village Hall Photo Competition

With ‘Village Halls Week 2020’ taking place from 20th-26th January, we are running a photo competition to provide funds for cash-strapped rural community halls.  The competition is designed to champion and emphasise the vital role that halls play in building rural communities.

The competition theme is Village Life – a photo which characterises the value of community in your village.  This is not about pretty villages or professional photography, but rather capturing the essence of community.

Top prize is £1,000 to the village hall and £500 to the photographer.  There are also other prizes.  The competition is open to all rural halls, and halls can enter as many photos as they wish.

Entry is free.  The closing date for entries is 15th March 2020.

Details and rules are available from

Villages can also vote for the best photos from other communities, in order to help the judges make a decision:
