Photography Competition Winners Announced!


We are excited to announce the winners and runners up of the UCW Photography Competition 2021.

This student operated competition is aimed at non-professional photographers, supporting career growth and recognition, for local creatives. This year saw some fantastic entries in both age categories, all under the theme of ‘What got you through?’.

A huge thank-you and well done to our winners, runners-up and all those who entered.

All of the winners and runners-up photography, as well as photos from our students’ portfolios, were on display in the Weston-super-Mare Sovereign Centre as part of the UCW Photography Degree Show 2021. They will also be featured at the upcoming Creative Arts Summer Show!
