Back in March, we launched an exiting project which (in it’s simplest form) aimed at getting people to photograph Churches.

By photographing a Church, the photographer will stop and consider the church they are photographing (if this is only to consider how best to compose the photo, that’s fine) – hopefully, this will lead on to other considerations.

Every week, we select our favourite image (we call this one in a million) that has been uploaded to the competition and showcase it on our website. This is great for the photographer (as it shows off their work with a link to their website/instagram) but also sparks some inspiration in us at Create Vision as we follow where people are getting involved in the project. You may or may not have been following our weekly updates, so here’s a recap of our fave images uploaded to one million churches so far.

I think you’ll agree the selection so far is pretty diverse. This is partly due to the project sparking the interest of people all around the world.

The project has been featured in local Christian newsletters, Local papers, BBC radio, and even by the Royal Photographic Society. It’s incredible to think that even though this is just the beginning of the project, it’s already generated so much interest.

As I type this, there have been just under 900 images uploaded to the project, How incredible would it be to hit 1000 before the end of the year. I know that will still leave us 999,000 images short of our goal, but small targets help in achieving a big goal.

There are 18 days left until January meaning we need to get shooting. To get involved, simply upload an image to instagram using #onemillionchurches

Have a look through the other recent uploads to the project by searching #onemillionchurches on instagram.

If you have uploaded a photo to the project, thank you but don’t stop there – please continue to do so as every image counts.
