After finding that a large number of UK adults are keen to see more demonstrations of faith in their local communities, specialist insurer Congregational & General decided to launch a national photography competition designed to showcase the work that is being done at the moment.
The insurer found that 44 per cent of adults would like to see more demonstrations of faith in their communities, while a further 78 per cent said that community initiatives are being demonstrated in their area.
To inform other people of what is already going on around the country, the firm is inviting photographers to capture local activity. Ten shortlisted finalists will go on to an exclusive event during Interfaith Week at the National Media Museum, which will be held on 24 November. 
Margaret Slater, marketing manager at Congregational Insurance, commented: “Community initiatives are seen to be widespread through the UK and we are excited to see some of these profiled through our Faith through a lens competition.
“We look forward to seeing further entries over the next few weeks, as the competition continues until 24 October. We are also inviting members of the public to vote on their favourite entries.”
