Are you a keen photographer? Can you capture the meaning of ‘social sciences’ and ‘society today’ in a single picture? If so, the ESRC Portraits of Britain photographic competition could be for you.

The ESRC are launching this free competition to capture images of what life in Britain means today. There are eight categories to enter, including an open category for young people.

The competition is run in partnership with the tenth annual ESRC Festival of Social Science and the winning entries will be showcased at the ESRC’s 2012 flagship Festival event in London this autumn.

It doesn’t matter if you are a complete novice, a Media, Film or Photography Student as the competition is open to all and is an opportunity to capture your portrait of Britain.

Please see Ms Hale for further details in FM1
