Photography Competition

Electrical Engineering in focus

Give us your best shot!

We're looking for original images which really focus on what Electrical and Electronic Engineering is all about. The winning pieces of work will feature in our student areas, and help inspire and celebrate who we are.

The competition is open to all students and staff in our department. So, take out your cameras and share some pictures that capture the essence of technology, applications, research, or student life here in the department, around College, or the wider field of EEE.

If you have got an image that's beautiful, fascinating, intriguing or fun, and represents what you love about our subject — we'd love to see it.

Competition winners

Winning entries will be professionally printed and displayed in student areas including 305 and the future Level 1 coffee area.


The panel of judges is Professor Eric Yeatman, Dr Kristel Fobelets, Dr David Thomas, Ms Kay Hancox and Mr Danny Harvey.

Competition rules

Submissions may be either Photography or Digital Art:

  • Photography: Pure photographic images with no enhancements. Minor adjustments are allowed, such as minor changes in cropping, sharpening, contrast, etc. Photographs may be colour or black and white, taken with any kind of camera.
  • Digital Art is a wider category which includes all work that uses additional digital technology as part of the creative or presentation process. Any photographs used in this category must be the entrants' own, but may be significantly altered or artistically enhanced. (An example of this is our camera lens image above, which was created from two separate images and enhanced with digital brush tools).

  • Deadline for entry is midnight 1 November 2019.
  • Submit your entries as JPEG/JPG files, and include your name in the title of the file. Please note that if you are selected as a winner, you will need to provide us with a 300dpi resolution file of your image that can be printed.
  • Each participant can submit more than one image. A separate entry must be made for each.  Submissions must be made via the entry form.
  • It is the responsibility of participants to ensure that the photographs they are submitting are their own work, that they own the copyright for them and that they do not infringe on the copyright or other rights of any third party.
  • It is the responsibility of participants to ensure that the images do not infringe any laws and that they have been taken with the consent of anyone who is identifiable in the image, or the consent of their parent/guardian if they are under 18.

Please note: The Department reserves the right to publish all submitted images on Department and College websites, newsletters, electronic screens, posters, social media, and other promotional material. Copyright will remain with the owner and full credit will be given.
