Congratulations to our 2018 Photography Competition Winners!

Each year, the Global Justice Academy runs a photography competition as part of the MA in Photography, organised by Colin Cavers of Edinburgh College of Art.

This year, the GJA partnered with the ERC Greyzone project to invite submissions in conjunction with its sponsored summer school, 'Navigating the Grey Zone: Complicity, Resistance, and Solidarity'. The project examines practices of collusion with, acquiescence to, and involvement in political violence, by focusing on three case studies: Vichy France, apartheid South Africa, totalitarian Romania, and dictatorship Argentina.

  • Winner, overall series: Keris Heading with 'Hungry?'.
  • Winner, single image: Amber Brown with 'The Coming Soon Land', image number 12.
  • Commended series: Isobel Budler with 'Bridges Not Walls'

The winning photography will be on display in the foyer of the School of Social and Political Science, Crystal Macmillan Building, from 25 June 2018 as part of the Greyzone Summer School. If you are nearby, do stop by!

Over the coming week, we will be introducing the photographers and the stories behind their images. Stay tuned!
