Deadline for photo competition approaching

The University’s Research Office is running a photo competition this summer for students, with cash prizes of up to £100* up for grabs.

The competition is based on reflecting research activity at Loughborough across all schools and disciplines through images.

Photos could represent applied or fundamental research, researchers in action, the research environment or any other aspects. Submissions are encouraged to be as creative as possible.

A cash prize of £100 will be awarded to the overall winner and two runner-up awards receive £50.

Images could illustrate the University’s global research challenges in the following areas:

-       Health and Wellbeing

-       Energy

-       Secure and Resilient Societies 

-       Changing Environments and Infrastructures

Or, they might represent research areas of excellence, for example:

-       Sport

-       Communication and Culture

-       High Value Manufacturing

-       Transport

-       The Built Environment

All images should be unedited with no filters, cropping or sizing, and should be as high resolution as possible. Images will be featured on the university website and therefore, the image copyright must be held by the person submitting the photo.

To take part, please email your images in JPEG format to by 31 July at 4pm.

*Please note: staff are welcome to submit images but will be ineligible for cash prizes
