Photo Competition 2023

The FRH photo competition 2023 will be open for entries from 27 June to 30 November. This edition is supported by ESACH (European Students’ Association for Cultural Heritage) and the Heritage Tribune.


The competition is open to everyone regardless of their nationality and whether they are professional photographers or not.


There are three categories: Religious Buildings (photos with a building or group of buildings as the main element), Artefacts (photos with objects related to religious heritage as the main element) and People and Events (photos in which people or the festivity are the protagonists.) Each participant can submit up to three photos per category.


All the entries will be evaluated by a jury composed of expert photographers, artists and representatives of FRH that is expected to meet the first week of December. The judges will select the three best photos of each category. From these, one will be chosen as the overall winner and the other eight will be finalists.


The winner will be invited to the 2024 FRH Conference (22-24 September 2024 in Krakow, Poland) with all costs covered up to a maximum of 1,000€. Finalists will be welcome to participate in the conference at their own cost. FRH will also issue a special publication with photos of the winner and finalists in each category that will be promoted throughout Europe.
