2012 WESTPHOTO Prize

6th Annual WESTPHOTO Photography Prize

2012: State of the Nation

This year the competition focussed on observations, concepts and projects exploring the current state of the UK. We invited students and Alumni from Universities in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to submit their work. We see the Photography Prize as a great opportunity to investigate the current state of affairs throughout the country.

The four Universities were:

University of Westminster,
University of Wales, Newport
Edinburgh Napier University
University of Ulster

Finalists were selected by a panel of judges to exhibit in all four countries.

Prizes were awarded in two categories – single image and project work.

The judges:

Clare Grafik – Head of Exhibitions, The Photographers’ Gallery
Simon Roberts – Photographer
Diane Smyth – Deputy Editor, British Journal of Photography
