In September 2014, the IOE Confucius Institute launched the Young Photographers’ Competition, to coincide with National Confucius Institute Day. Since its launch we have seen some excellent photography from students across the world. The aim of the competition is to dispel the cultural stereotypes of China through photography and show the vast country through the eyes of young people. Each year we include a home-based category which explores China’s relationship with the United Kingdom. The Young Photographers Competition is generously supported by the Chinese Embassy in London.
The 2019 Young Photographers Competition is now closed and the winners have been announced. You can see some of them below.
The full set of winning photographs will be on display at two UCL exhibitions:
- Monday 3rd – Monday 24th February in North Cloisters
- Friday 1st – 22nd May in South Cloisters (THIS HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE – WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE FOR AUTUMN 2020)
In both runs, the exhibition will be open from 10:00-18:00 for 7 days a week, and admission is free for all.
To take part in 2020, please sign up to our e-forum as this is where we will advertise.
