In the autumn term of 2008, the Department of Geography held an undergraduate photography competition. Students submitted digital images in the following categories: Natural Environments, Urban spaces, Healthy/Unhealthy Environments, Living with Pollution and The New East End. The best entries are displayed in the Department and may feature on the website and in future publicity material. Prizes of Amazon vouchers to the value of £50, £30 and £20 were awarded to the top three entries, as judged by a panel of departmental staff.
The winning photographs, and those highly commended, can be seen below:
