The Dean and Chapter of Coventry Cathedral, in collaboration with Coventry University, are commissioning designs for a set of vestments and a banner to enhance the celebration of Archangel Michael, patron saint of the Cathedral, specifically for use in processions both inside and outside their ruined and rebuilt Cathedral.

We are inviting professional artists and students from the United Kingdom and from overseas to enter the competition by preparing some preliminary designs for a cope and a banner, together with an indication of how the designs would be reflected in the other vestments.
