Student Photography Competition


Lumiere, the UK’s largest light festival, will be coming to Durham City next week with 29 installations illuminating the November skyline.

We would love to see your pictures capturing the magic of Lumiere, both on campus and in the city. Our Instagram competition offers the opportunity for students to get involved in our #DUlumiere Student Photo Competition on Instagram!



To take part in the competition, simply add the #DUlumiere hashtag to your photos from Thursday 16th until Sunday 20th November. Only photos uploaded to Instagram during this period will be entered - and any photo taken and tagged is eligible to be posted (along with the copy) on both our Durham University Instagram channel and our other social channels, such as Twitter and Facebook.

We will share the shortlist with you for the big public vote in the week following the festival!
