The Mundipharma Photography Competition

Welcome to the fourth year of the Mundipharma Photography Competition. Following the year on year success of this competition, we have created five brand new categories to push you to your creative limits.

The general theme for this year’s competition is ‘Through My Lens’. We want to see the world through your eyes and create a collection of photographs that show us the unique perspectives that make up our exceptional community on the Cambridge Campus.

There are five categories to enter with each category being divided into two sub-categories- a smart phone category and a digital camera category. To enter this competition, all you need is to be a Napp, Bard or Mundipharma employee. We want to see the world the way you do, so grab your phone or your camera and get snapping!

My Workplace - Through my Lens

We are a diverse community of more than a thousand talented people working together on one campus. Each one of us experiences our environment differently, whether it’s through the work that we do, the space that we occupy or the ways in which we interact. Show us what is unique about the way you experience your workplace.

 

My PassionThrough My Lens

What is your passion? It might be your pet, a sport, a way of life or an idea you hold high. It could be a person, a place or an activity. Show us the thing that inspires you, the thing that fires you up or lies close to your heart.

 

My CommuteThrough My Lens

Commuting to work is something we all do, yet each of our experiences is different. Take stock of your unique journey and help us see it through your eyes.

 

My World and its CulturesThrough my Lens

Whether you travel near or far, show us the cultures, communities and destinations that have lit you up or left an impression.

 

My Creative PerspectiveThrough My Lens

Art is everywhere if you just look closely enough. Show us creative, mind bending images featuring interesting perspectives, patterns and textures.

Please remember that the images will be displayed in our offices, so please make sure that the content is appropriate.

The competition will be judged externally by the art committee at Little Van Gogh. The entries will be judged for their artistic and technical merit, composition, content and originality.
