‘Cardiff University: 125 Years’ Photo Competition

Our 125th Anniversary Photo’ Competition couldn’t be easier to enter and offers some great prizes. In addition, we’ll be showcasing all prize-winners, runners-up and any other entries which we like on our website - and perhaps also in an end of year exhibition in the University.

There are four competition categories, each with a stunning grand prize to be awarded at the end of the competition in October 2008. In addition there are also prizes for the “Pick of the Month’ photos which will be selected over the next nine months. Photographs can be easily be submitted online using Flickr or email.
