Student Photography Competition

Alumno in conjunction with Homes for Students were pleased to announce the winners of the first Sheffield Park Hill Student Photography Competition run by Photo North. The competition was launched earlier in 2020 year and had the theme of ‘Your Community’ but due to the COVID crisis had to postpone the winning presentation until all the entries could be submitted and judged.

There were over 100 entries and the winner was 20 year old Evie Scarborough with three joint runners up; Harriet Massey, Edward Paxton and Ellie Bell. Winner, Evie had just graduated from a 2 year Foundation Course in Editorial Photography so the win gave the beginning of her career a boost. The finalists entries were be on display in the communal areas at Béton House the new student accommodation at Park Hill for a few months after the announcement of the winner.

“Photography competitions matter. Responding to a brief can push you out of your comfort zone and develop an idea or theme not attempted before. Competitions allow your work to be seen and validated by industry experts and to elevate your profile. The prizes are undoubtedly helpful. With traditional outlets for images diminishing”
