Wanted: Britain’s best student photographers

The search for the best young photographers in the UK is on. Could the winner be sitting in your class?

Photography competition: Could one of your students be Britain's best young photographer?

A hunt for the best young photographic talent in the UK has been launched by Norwich University of the Arts. Its annual Beyond the Frame competition is open for entries, and encourages 11- to 19-year-olds to send in their snaps.

This year’s theme is “Through My Eyes” and gives students the opportunity to enter portraiture and fashion, societal and environmental images.

There are two awards up for grabs: one for 11- to 15-year-olds and one for 16- to 19-year-olds. The winners will receive £1,000 of Canon camera equipment, and the runners-up will get judges’ choice prizes.
