2018 Graduate Photography competition winners

A record number of entries were received for the 2018 competition, now in its seventh year, and the standard was exceptionally high.

Our first Grand Prize was awarded to Elizabeth Nyikos (DPhil Music) for her vibrant set of photographs depicting the city and its community from a fresh perspective.

Our second Grand Prize was awarded to Marie Wong (Synthesis for Biology and Medicine EPSRC CDT) for her warm and richly detailed set of photographs depicting student life.

The Judges' Choice prize was awarded by Instagrammers Oxford (@IgersOxford) to Ashley Tsai (MSc by Research in Chemical Biology).

The competition was open to all current graduate students at the University of Oxford, including graduate Visiting Students and recent alumni. Images were judged on their aesthetic quality, originality and adherence to the terms and conditions of the competition.
