In the wealth of the work Engineers Without Borders UK carried out throughout the year there are many stories to tell, and we want to help you tell yours! So, we're pleased to announce our latest photography competition. Win some fantastic prizes and the chance to have your work exhibited nationwide and beyond!

The winner of this year's competition will receive the prize of a photography course worth up to £200. Those who win 'Best in Category' will receive large format prints of their photographs. All winning entrants will have their work publicised by EWB-UK.

This year's themes are as follows:

  • Education
  • Opportunity
  • Leadership
  • Technology

We hope to see images representing change created by all aspects of our work in the world – in the UK and overseas; with technologies and with people; among professionals and students; in the field and in the classroom.

This year the winners will see their work displayed as part of a touring 'Massive Small Change photographic exhibition' and extensively publicised on-line and in print, in promotion of activities and achievements of EWB-UK, on our own publications, in the public and professional media.

This year’s competition focuses on celebrating the exciting introduction of our new strategy at the National Conference. To find out more you can read Towards a Strategy 2012- 2017.
