We are running a mid-winter College photo competition over the winter holiday period! Any current Churchill students, staff or Fellows are warmly invited to take part, including partners or family members living on the College site.

There are four different categories; Holiday, Nature, Community and My favourite place in Churchill. All entries must be connected to Churchill College in some way. Further details on each category can be found below. You can submit one entry per category for consideration. You are welcome to send us multiple images, if you are happy for them to be shared on College platforms, but if you do this, please remember to identify the specific image you would like to be considered.
