Winners announced – Year in Industry photo competition

Computing students currently on their placement submitted a diverse range of images to the first Year in Industry photo competition, which reflects the range of experiences students have during their placement year.

The judges found it difficult to narrow it down to just two winners, so decided on runners-up in each category.

The winners are

Best individual photo:

Winner – Matt Weeks, on placement at Cisco

Runner up – Lucas Slater-Williams, on placement at Wanstor


Best portfolio:

Winner – Charlotte Hutchinson, on placement at IBM

Runner up – Gajalakshan Mohankumar, on placement at RSCPP


The pictures display the range of experiences students have during their placement year from the daily commute to international travel, serious work to putting up (and becoming) the office Christmas decorations.

Sian Robson, Placement Officer said; ‘We were pleased with the range of pictures submitted and that they came from students based at both Canterbury and Medway campuses and from undergraduate and Master’s students. There really is no such thing as a typical Year in Industry placement for our students. Computing skills are in demand in every sector and we’re pleased that the competition entries reflect that.’

The winners will receive an Amazon voucher and a bottle of bubbly, the runners-up will receive a bottle of bubbly. Congratulations to our winners and runners up and thank you to everyone for submitting your pictures.
