Global opportunities photo competition

We run the annual global opportunities photo competition to expand UWE Bristol’s image library to include more content of UWE Bristol students abroad.

This year's photo competition was open to all students undertaking global opportunities abroad – this includes study, work, volunteering and teaching abroad. Students were asked to submit images that tell a story and narrate their international experiences, such as selfie’s against beautiful scenery or amongst a bustling city street or a photo of them taking part in an unusual cultural experience.

The competition was open until Sunday 31 May 2020 and the winning prize was a £150 Amazon voucher.
