Global Campus Photographers of the Year 2017/18

Calling all budding photographers...It’s back!

We are excited to announce that the Global Campus Photography competition has returned and this year, the competition theme will be connected with the Global Goals for Sustainable Development as they are the ultimate 'to do' list for people and the planet.

The theme for the 2017/18 Photographer of the Year Competition is “Where I Live”.

This year’s theme will focus on making our cities better places to live and reducing waste by only using what we need. Our friends at UNICEF are looking for great photographs that they can use to help people learn about the Global Goals, which means that there’s a chance your entry will be exhibited globally!

Thinking about the theme

  • Have a think about the theme (Where I Live) and explore some ideas you might have about how to express this theme
  • “Where I Live” can include landscape photography, buildings, cars, trains, roads – it’s up to you!
  • Have a look online at some photos for inspiration and ideas – or look on GC Online!
  • Take your camera and head outside to take some practice shots.
  • Share your tips on taking a great photograph on the Padlet on GC Online!
  • Keep practicing until you take the photograph that you would like to enter for the competition.

The rules

  • Photographs entered must be your original work
  • You may only send in one entry
  • The digital file must be 20MB or smaller
