Fieldwork Photography Competition Winner

last modified Aug 13, 2019 11:51 AM

This year POLIS ran a Photography Competition in collaboration with our blog, In The Long Run (ITLR), to showcase the best images our PhD students have taken whilst out on their fieldwork.

We received some fantastic submissions but we were able to narrow down our winners. 

In Third Place:

Alex Grigor, PhD candidate in Politics and International Studies.

New York City. "Photographed at a symposium on cyberwarfare in NYC. The masks represent the hacktivist group Anonymous. If you look closely in the reflections of the masks, many are signed by active Anonymous members, using their online pseudonyms"

In Second Place:

Karim El Taki, PhD candidate in Politics and International Studies.

Doha, Qatar. "Why have one surveillance camera on a pole when you can have five? In Doha, Education City’s Oxygen Park may at times be suffocating"

First Place:

Paola Velasco Herrejon, PhD Candidate, Centre of Development Studies.

Unión Hidalgo, Oax. Mexico. "In this shot the president of the landowners committee is teaching me to do a specific stitch while talking wind energy politics. I took it because I wanted to capture this safe and at the same time powerful space"

These images will be featured on our website in the upcoming academic year, so keep your eye out for them!

Thank you again to everyone who entered this year. The Fieldwork Photography Competition will be running again next year, so keep that in mind whilst you are out on fieldwork this year students!
