Climate Change Champions Photography Competition - deadline extended

19 May 2014

Individuals and teams are invited to submit photographs of what they are doing to improve the environment by 3 June 2014.

Climate Change Competition

A group of our students, the Climate Change Champion volunteers, are keen to show the world what students, staff and teams from the University and the Students’ Union are doing to make positive environmental changes.

As they wish to do this in a fun and visual way, they have recently  launched the Climate Change Champions photography competition and invite any student, staff member or team (group, department or society) that studies or works at the University or the Students’ Union to enter the photography competition to show the positive steps that they are taking. 

The ‘Climate Change Champions’ students are supported by the Environmental Sustainability Team and the Volunteering & Community Engagement Team at the University.

They are looking for good quality photographs that demonstrate the positive steps you (either as an individual or part of a University team) are taking to help the environment. The photographs can be fun, educational, informative and/or quirky – it is entirely up to you!

Requirements for photographs

  • Good quality, sharp images
