Celebrating Creative Student Photography

We’re looking for the finest photography by creative students currently in Secondary (age 11+) or Further Education (e.g. school, sixth form or college, but not degree level).

Entries to the competition have now closed for 2022. Acclaimed photographers Àsìkò, Lucia Griggi and Emily Edwards joined Norwich University of the Arts’ judging panel to help pick the winners and award some great prizes at our event on Thursday 7 April.

Take a look at the 2022 Shortlist in our online gallery, and keep an eye on this page for more information about the 2023 competition later in the year.

The Prizes

A Canon M50 Mark II camera up for grabs in each age category
