Photo competition

Tempest Photography prize 2017/18

Each year we ask our students to submit up to three photos that they've taken during their period abroad for the Tempest Photography competition. It's open to all current term abroad and year abroad students, as well as students who have just returned to Essex.

How to enter

Download the application form (.doc). Email your completed form, along with your photo entries, to essexabroad@essex.ac.uk. You can enter a maximum of three photos – make sure they are high resolution!

Application process

Once the deadline has passed, a selection panel will carefully review the applications and we’ll be in touch once the winner is confirmed.

The winner will receive £500 plus a printed and framed copy of their work. 3 runners up will also receive a printed and framed copy of their entry.

What photo style are you looking for?

We would like to see images that capture the real spirit of living and studying abroad. We are also looking for social or cultural relevance.

Deadline

Applications will be open from Monday 12 February until Friday 20 April 2018. Good luck!
