Application process

Once the deadline has passed, a selection panel will carefully review the applications and we’ll be in touch once the winner is confirmed.

The winner will receive £500 plus a printed and framed copy of their work. 3 runners up will also receive a printed and framed copy of their entry.

What photo style are you looking for?

We would like to see images that capture the real spirit of living and studying abroad. We are also looking for social or cultural relevance.


Applications will be open from Monday 12 February until Friday 20 April 2018. Good luck!
