A BLACK and white view of Pakefield Church has risen above the competition to be selected as The Journal's Picture of the Week.
The recent celebrations to mark the 60th anniversary of its rededication have captured local people's imaginations, and this photograph shows the church in all its glory during the recent snowfall.
'After seeing some old pictures of it from the 1940's, I thought I would send in a more up to date one,' said Eric Johnstone, of Cliftonville Road, Pakefield.
Mr Johnstone will receive his photograph in a 12in x 10in frame, mounted and inscribed, worth more than �60, from Picture Studios, of London Road North, Lowestoft. The winning picture will also go forward to a six-monthly winners' final contest, when he will be in with a chance of claiming a 12in x 18in photo block worth �130.

We are accepting images for next week's competition. They can be of any subject, whether they are entertaining snapshots, luscious landscapes or a close-up brush with nature. They must be taken by amateur photographers, and we'd prefer digital pictures. We do accept prints, but they need to be copies as we cannot guarantee their return.
Send your picture with your name, address and contact details to email@example.com marking your e-mail Journal Photo Competition. Prints can be sent to Picture of the Week, The Journal, 147 London Road North, Lowestoft, NR32 1NB.
