The winning entries to The Bartlett’s annual Student Travel Awards scholarship have been announced, and this year include photos and essays from around the world, including Morocco, Greece and Albania.

Winning entries

This year, over 20 people applied, with four students receiving a share of the scholarship fund. Entries ranged from an exploration of the emerging openly queer community in Athens, a residency at Wilderness Wood in East Sussex, a trek across Europe documented by the receipts collected, a trip to Albania to find out how its communist history has shaped its built environment, and an exploration of Morocco's architectural influence as an 'urban laboratory'.

The winning entries were: 

  • Morocco: Blue Cities & Bohemian Vibes by Julian Gooneratne
  • Exploring the emerging openly queer community in Athens by Xan Xacobo Goetzee-Barral
  • The Future of Albania’s Built Environment by Sarah Bibby
  • A residency at Wilderness Wood in East Sussex

Discussing the entries, Annabel Brown, The Bartlett's Director of Education and Student Experience, said:  

"We received more than 20 applications for these awards and it was wonderful to see so many exciting trips planned after the 2+ years of travel lockdowns. The Faculty was pleased to be able to help to fund these trips, which the students really enjoyed and greatly benefitted from."

We'll be sharing all the winning submissions on Instagram over the Winter break, so keep an eye out, or follow #WeAreTheBartlett.

The Bartlett Student Travel Awards

The Bartlett Faculty Travel Awards and Scholarships was created to support Bartlett undergraduate students in undertaking independent travel and creatively document their inspiration and experiences from these travels.
