Last year's Sustainability Photographer of the Year Awards gave us a glimpse of how you saw the world during lockdown, when the drop in human activity provided more of a place for nature.

The year’s theme is ‘looking forward’. We are thinking about our sustainable future in light of the lessons learned from the pandemic. We also now have a new environmental sustainability strategy for the University and are trying to build back better; all of these give us reasons for optimism. We would like to know what 'looking forward' and sustainability mean to you as an individual, bringing life and focus to issues of global significance from right here in Oxford.

Show off your skill, gain recognition, and play a really important role: connecting individuals and day-to-day Oxford life with sustainability. You have the chance to be crowned 'Sustainability Photographer of the Year 2021’. The winner will also receive a large print of their image, while two runners up will also get smaller prints of theirs.

All students and staff of the University are welcome to enter the competition. Visit the Environmental Sustainability website for more information and the entry form.  

The competition closes on 10 June 2021.
