Photography competition

Healthy ageing

Voting has now closed

The Year of Health photo competition aims to capture and share Heriot-Watt's staff and student research through visual storytelling. A prestigious panel of artists and photographers will award prizes to the top entries in the four categories of healthy people, healthy homes, healthy society and healthy planet.

In addition to the category prizes, there will be one overall winner chosen by the public from the shortlisted entries. Voting has now closed and we will share the results with you soon.

Category winners will each receive a £60 Amazon voucher and the public prize winner will receive a £100 Amazon voucher. The winners will be announced at the Principal's Public Engagement Prize awards and showcase event in December 2019 where they will receive their prize.

Some examples of previous research photos are in the gallery below and for further inspiration on visual storytelling, check out the Exposure website's Featured Stories.
