The Sixteen Photo Competition

It’s no secret that the renowned British ensemble The Sixteen isn’t really made up of sixteen members (at least the last time I checked), yet the number does have historical implications.

How and why Harry Christophers decided to name the group as such is a mystery and perhaps best left unanswered.

The number is still important, in any case, and is often used in promotion, like their annual photo contest.

Once again, the group has put out a call for photo submissions.

Contestants may send in images that are obvious and straightforward (above), or more subtle and/or abstract (below).

The closing date is Monday 7 November. Please email entries to or send them by post to The Sixteen, Quadrant House, 10 Fleet Street, London EC4Y 1AU.

Winners will receive two tickets for one of The Sixteen’s own-promotion Choral Pilgrimage concerts in 2012. Entries will be judged by Harry Christophers after the closing date and the winners will be contacted directly. The winning images will be posted on our website in January 2012.
