This year’s  Social Justice Competition is now open and it’s a great way to highlight a social justice issue that’s important to you. 

You can raise awareness of a social issue that matters to you, and be in with a chance of  winning up to £400. The competition is open to all undergraduates, and for the first time this year, postgraduate taught students.

Photographs can be taken on any device – phone, tablet or camera. Once you have your photograph all you need to do is give it a title and write 100 words explaining why your chosen social issue is important.
