#lovelibraries Photo Competition

Share your images of our libraries with us and you could win one of three prizes (1st prize £50, 2nd prize £30, 3rd prize £20), plus the chance to get your photo displayed in one of our libraries.

University of Nottingham Libraries and the Students’ Union have teamed up to run a photo competition. We’re asking you to capture what our libraries mean to you, or why you love them.

Whether it’s the external architecture, the interior spaces, the views from the top floor, the people you meet there, or how they support your studies, teaching or research, we’d love to see your photos. We’re looking for a combination of photography skills and interesting subjects. Bonus marks for creativity!

Competition Dates

Entries will be accepted until 23:59 on Sunday 13 May 2018. Photos submitted after this will not be entered into the competition.


To enter, you must either be a:

  • currently registered student at the University of Nottingham who is not suspended
  • current member of University of Nottingham staff (University Nottingham Libraries staff are eligible to enter but are not eligible for prizes).


  • Winners (eligible for display within libraries) will be chosen by a panel made up of UoN Libraries staff and Students’ Union Officers.
  • Overall winners of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be decided by public vote.

See our website for more information on how to enter, subject limitations and how we propose to use winning entries.
