CSES Centenary Photographic Competition

A visual celebration of Science and Engineering in Essex.

Deadline extended to October 31st

Essex 2020, the county-wide STEAM festival is putting the creative Arts into STEM. As part of this and Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society’s 100 year anniversary celebrations CSES is running a Centenary Photographic Competition – open to primary and secondary students in Essex.

Your challenge is to take and submit photographs which capture what is unique or special about science and technology from across our amazing county. From the longest pier in the world and the birthplace of radio, to Nobel prize winners, companies that put image sensors into space and much, much more…

Take out your camera or your phone and get snapping! The judging panel are looking for visually appealing and original images that are inspiring and relevant to any aspect of Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics in Essex. Let your imagination and creativity run free, with an innovative angle or a creative interpretation. Image manipulation is allowed.

The competition is open to primary or secondary aged students living or educated in Essex. There are two categories of entry: one for primary school students and one for secondary school students. The entries will be shortlisted by members of CSES and a panel of judges will select a winner from the shortlisted entries in each category.

The prizes in each category are: 1st (£60 voucher), 2nd (£30 voucher) and 3rd (£20 voucher) place. The winners and selected entries will be displayed in an online exhibition and may feature in future publicity materials.

For details of how to enter, FAQs, terms and conditions and photography tips visit the CSES website.

Entries must be submitted no later than 31st October 2020. Winners will be announced Friday 16th of November.
