The UCL Institute for Sustainable Heritage launched their first Annual Photo Competition in 2017.
For its first year, dozens of University College London staff and students entered excellent photographs on the theme of 'Future Heritage', an important research strand in UCL ISH's strategy.
While heritage is often considered in a historical context, much of UCL ISH’s work relates to protecting existing heritage from present and future impacts, which can range from global climate change and conflict to changing technologies and use.
The entries were judged by UCL ISH Director Professor May Cassar, visual anthropologist and artist Marcel Reyez-Cortez and UCL BSEER Communications Manager Alex Blackburn.
