From education to employment


Two students from Norwich are in the running to win the nation’s most prestigious student photography awards, as the shortlist has just been announced.

The awards organised by leading manufacturer of monitor solutions, EIZO, are designed to celebrate young photography and creative talent across the UK and provide a vital career kick-start to students with the right flair and imagination.

Chris Roberts and Katherine Blamire from Norwich are in with a chance of winning an EIZO ColorEdge computer monitor and an exclusive, once in a lifetime placement with a world-renowned photographer.

Norwich University of the Arts students across a range of photography courses were asked to enter the awards, which are now in their 3rd year and continue to go from strength to strength. This year, EIZO was looking for submissions of daring, original and innovative images where colour plays a significant role in the creation and idea within the image.

The shortlisted entries are now presented to the judges for this year’s awards, who are all professional photographers and experts in the field. The judges are Nick Ballón, a London-based documentary and portrait photographer; esteemed landscape photographer Catherine Hyland and Benedict Redgrove, an innovation specialist whose most recent work includes shooting an ambitious project with NASA.

There will be a total of three national winners announced on June 14th, with the photography placements set to take place this summer.

Hayley Osborne, marketing manager for EIZO commented:

“We are excited to announce the shortlist this year as the standard of entries has been incredible. Students across Norwich have really got stuck into the brief and we’ve seen a wealth of innovative and inspiring submissions. We can’t wait to see who the judges pick as winners in June!”
