In a change from previous years, the Central Communications Board, which runs the competition, has decided to alternate between print and websites/digital media from this year onwards, with print entries invited this year.
The competition is open to Church of Ireland parishes, dioceses and affiliated organisations, and entries are invited in the following categories:
Quality of presentation, strength of content and outreach potential are once again to be the standards of excellence against which entries will be judged. The closing date is Friday April 27. Winners will be announced at the General Synod taking place in the Armagh City Hotel from May 10-12.
CCB Chairman, the Most Rev Pat Storey, said: “Communication can be hard work but it is incredibly worthwhile in communicating the Christian faith and building up the life of the Church of Ireland.
“I encourage you to send in your best work and we are looking forward to seeing how the different parts of our Church present themselves to the wider world.”
