Winning entries in competition sponsored by Tempest Ltd

'Drop in Water' by Simon Bray

Each year, the University's contracted graduation photographers - Tempest Ltd - sponsor a student photography competition which is coordinated through the student newspaper, Student Direct.

This year, the standard of entries was impressive and the Tempest judging panel was really enthused by the short listed entries.

They chose the following winners, who received prizes of £250, £150 and £100 respectively from Tempest:

  • 1st prize - Simon Bray ('Drop in Water' - shown right)
  • 2nd prize - Joe Sheffer ('Pakistani Woodcutter')
  • 3rd prize - Daniel Leach ('St Pancras Station')

UMSU General Manager, Alistair McGregor, said: "The winning entries show a remarkable depth of talent from amongst our student population of which both the Union and the University can be proud."
