Six undergraduate photography students from Leeds Arts University have been shortlisted for a prestigious student photography award organised EIZO, a leading manufacturer of monitor solutions.
The awards, now in their third year, are designed to celebrate young photography and creative talent across the UK. This year EIZO was looking for submissions of daring, original and innovative images where colour plays a significant role in the creation and idea within the image.
BA (Hons) Photography students Andras Szabo, Charlotte Dobson, Charlotte Kay, James Allinson and Mia Douglas, and BA (Hons) Fashion Photography student Eva-Lili Halpin are in with a chance of winning an EIZO ColorEdge computer monitor and an exclusive placement with a world-renowned photographer.
The shortlisted entries will be presented to the judges for this year’s awards: Nick Ballón, a London-based documentary and portrait photographer; landscape photographer Catherine Hyland; and Benedict Redgrove, an innovation specialist whose most recent work includes shooting an ambitious project with NASA.
The three winners will be announced on 14 June, with the photography placements set to take place this summer.
Hayley Osborne, Marketing Manager for EIZO commented:
“We are excited to announce the shortlist this year as the standard of entries has been incredible. Students have really got stuck into the brief and we’ve seen a wealth of innovative and inspiring submissions. We can’t wait to see who the judges pick as winners in June!”
