GTC Photography Competition 2012-2013: Events at Green Templeton College
The winner of the Green Templeton College photography competition 2012-2013 is postgraduate student Charlotte Koldeweij (MSc Environmental Change and Management) for her black and white image of last December's formal Christmas dinner in the Radcliffe Observatory.
The judging panel of fellows, students and staff praised the composition of Charlotte's photograph and the lively portrayal of one of the most traditional of College events, a formal dinner.
The runner-up prize was awarded to staff member Tayma Cannon (Conference and Events Manager) whose photograph showed senior members of the College - including the Principal Professor Sir David Watson and Vice-Principal Professor Ingrid Lunt -with GTC Fellow Dr Rebecca Surender as she prepared for her installation as a University Proctor in March this year.
The theme of this year's competition was 'Events at Green Templeton College' and entrants were asked to submits photographs that capture the academic, social, sporting and fundraising events that make up GTC's lively calendar, from seminars and workshops, to sports events and brunches.
The judges agreed that the image captured a moment of relaxed informality during preparations for a very formal occasion.
Charlotte and Tayma both win cash prizes and their images will be featured in the GTC Magazine 2013 which is published in September.
This year, 15 College members entered the competition submitting almost 30 individual photographs.
The competition is made possible by a generous gift from Dr Elman Poole, a retired neurologist living in Oxford who is also a Common Room Member.
