Sustainable Photographer of the Year Contest 2021
The University of Oxford Sustainability Photographer of the Year competition 2021 is now open for entries
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.
