Our annual FE Week and Me photography competition is back and once again FE Week has teamed up with NCFE and the Royal Photographic Society to hunt for stunning pictures that depict student life in the FE and skills sector, through the eyes of students.

In 2014, after over 500 submissions, FE Week and competition sponsors NCFE and supporters Royal Photographic Society, whittled down the photography students’ entries to the competition down to 20 finalists. Following a national vote, Hassan Chowdhury of Newham Adult Learning Service was crowned the 2013 winner.

Entrants will be in with a chance of winning some stunning prizes and the chance to shadow a high-profile professional photographer.

This year there are two categories of entry: photography student and non-photography student.  Each year the competition has been flooded with a real mixture of photographs. Previously, many entrants have not been photography students and it therefore seemed fair to to have two categories going forward.

This years prizes will consist of:

Category – Photography student – Nikon D5100 Camera Kit and work shadowing placement with a professional photographer.

Category – Non-photography student – Samsung Galaxy Camera 2
