The University of Oxford Sustainability Photographer of the Year Award 2019 offers an opportunity for you to exhibit your skill, gain recognition, and play a really important role: connecting individuals and day-to-day Oxford life with sustainability. You have the chance to be crowned 'Sustainability Photographer of the Year 2019', receive a large print of your winning image, and two runners up will also receive smaller prints of theirs.
