The judging panel was extremely impressed by the quality of responses to the Centenary photo competition on the theme ‘The University today.’

Panel chairman Vice-Chancellor Sir Alan Wilson, said: “Nobody knows the University like the staff and students at Leeds and this shows in the quality of entrants. The photographs – of such high quality throughout – have really captured the essence of the University. The images are testimony to the talent and skills of Leeds people.”

The overall winner is linguistics and phonetics student Zoe McNaughton, whose image ‘Community and conformity’ was captured at 10am on a November morning last year with a Canon EO5 (28-80mm lens, no filter). She wins £750.

Runners up in the student category are Simon Brooks (history of art), with a Photoshop marriage of clubbers with the Parkinson building and Kleos Lenz (civil engineering), whose Parkinson tower was taken with a Fujifilm S6027 digital camera last November. They each win £100.

Staff winner is the striking image of a ‘mobile’ student from the top of University steps by Caroline Goulden (classics), using a Minolta compact viva 35mm. She wins £500. Runners up are Alexei Likhtman (physics), with a ‘University in Autumn’ view from seminar room three in physics (Nicon Coolpix digital camera); and finance manager Phil McDonald’s Parkinson tower, at around 3pm on December 12, flanked by Emmanuel Church and Trinity St David’s (Canon EOS 300D digital). £100 to each.
