About the competition

The HDR Committee invites postgraduate candidates within the School to enter the annual School of Social Science Postgraduate Photo Competition.

Students are invited to submit a photograph that represents a core theme or the main contribution of their research. The aim of the competition will be to capture in material/visual form the contributions that the postgraduate student body make to the intellectual culture of the School.

Entries must be accompanied by a short descriptive caption, explaining the photograph and its research theme.

Judging criteria

Entries will be judged on how well the image and accompanying caption capture the viewer’s attention and interest, articulate the student’s research theme, and communicate the significance of their contribution to the social sciences.

All entries must be the original work of the entrant and must be created exclusively by the entrant.


Further details about the competition, including the opening and closing dates for entires, the prizes, and the mechanisms for announcing winners will be provided in due course.
