Resources:Framed photo competition

What do resources mean to you?

The UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources is pleased to invite entries to the Resources:Framed photo competition.

Under the theme of 'natural resources in a human world' the ISR is looking for striking images which capture the interaction between people and the planet.

Entries can include finite, biotic and renewable resources and can cover anything from small scale farming to major extractive operations, urban development or recycling.

The question is - how do you see the world?

First prize - £200

Student runner up - £100

Staff runner up - £100

The winning entries as well as shortlisted images will also be displayed.

Judging will be led by Mark Edwards, one of the most widely published photographers in the world and creator of the Hard Rain Project.

Closing date for entries January 31
