Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS)


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 many fantastic submissions but we were able to narrow down our winners. 

In Third Place:

Halimatou Hima Moussa Dioula, PhD Candidate for Development Studies.

Kadata, Maradi, Niger. "We hold pens. What's your superpower? Learning, ilimi Haske."

In Second Place:

Jose Ciro Martinez, PhD in Politics and International Studies.

Amman, Jordan. "Bread is Life"

First Place:

Farhana Rahman, PhD Candidate for Multi-Disciplinary Gender Studies.

Balukhali Rohingya Refugee Camp, Bangladesh. "Beyond Borders"

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!
