Lincoln Cathedral hosts art display competition for tourism guide cover

The next cover of Visit Lincoln’s what’s on guide will be picked from designs by students at the University of Lincoln.

The designs submitted have been now put on display at the Chapter House in Lincoln Cathedral and visitors can vote for their favourite cover photo of the Spring/Summer edition

Rachel Bishop and Amanda McSorley, who also publish the Bailgate Independent, held a competition for third year students on the illustration course.

The subject of the magazine is RAF’s centenary celebrations (RAF 100) and Europe’s biggest Steampunk festival. Students have designed their artwork around the same theme.

“When we chose RAF 100 and Steampunk as a subject we did wonder if we had been too restrictive, but we needn’t have worried as the exhibition has some really diverse pieces,” said Amanda McSorley.

The exhibition also features a video installation by a student of Lincoln Minster School, Ben Harris, who is the winner of the UK-wide Ideas Festival.

Rachel Bishop said: “We have been amazed at and are delighted with the quality of the images. We’re also delighted all the artists get the chance to exhibit in the beautiful Chapter House and would urge everyone to visit and vote.”

You can visit the exhibition this week.
