Disability Resource Centre: Photography Competition

The Disability Resource Centre (DRC) is pleased to announce its first Photography Competition, entitled Disability at the University of Cambridge. The competition is open to all staff and students of the University of Cambridge.

The DRC is looking for quality images that illustrate experiences of disability at the University. Submitted entries may be used in the University’s printed publications and online presence, as well as in external publications. The brief is deliberately wide, offering scope for originality and creativity. Images can be either natural (unaltered), or artistically enhanced.

The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. on 1 March 2011. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded at the Annual Disability Lecture on 24 March 2011. The short-listed entries will be printed and displayed at the Lecture, and all submitted photographs will be presented in a slide show.

Please visit for a submission form and for further information.
