Worldview 2017: School of Geography Photography Competition

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN TO GET YOUR CAMERAS AND SMARTPHONES READY AND POISED TO TAKE PART IN THE ANNUAL SCHOOL OF GEOGRAPHY PHOTO COMPETITION!

 

We’re hoping our students and staff can help share a glimpse of some of the amazing geographical and environmental science opportunities here at Queen Mary University of London.

So whether you are doing fieldwork, heading home for a weekend break, exploring the capital city or working on a placement, we want you to try and capture something extraordinary or thought-provoking that gives people an insight into being a geographer or environmental scientist.

This year, we are introducing a new prize for alumni entries; as well as a new category 'My Time at Queen Mary'. This new category is open to photos from the past, as well as the present. 

Categories

Boundaries – City Life – Resilient Earth – My Place in the World – My Time at Queen Mary

Prizes
1st place (£50 voucher), runner up (£25 voucher), highly commended (£10 voucher), an alumni prize and a staff prize. There is a new prize for the best photo across all categories representing inclusivity. Voting for a 'People’s Choice' award will also be opened after the deadline.
