College of Science & Engineering

The KB101 photography competition

As part of our KB101 celebrations we are announcing a photography competition to showcase life and work in the College of Science and Engineering.

The competition is intended to be as open as possible: images can cover all aspects of life and work in the College of Science and Engineering, either at King’s Buildings or in any other of our science facilities across town. Subjects can include landscapes, buildings, people, or flora and fauna. We encourage you to be creative: capture snapshots of staff and student life, and research- or course-related activities: including lab work, experiments or field trips.

Summary of the competition rules

  • The competition runs until 5pm, 7 October 2022, and is open to all.
  • We will restrict the number of entries from each person to five. You will be able to replace any submitted images with later ones, to a total of five.
