This year’s UCL Geography field class photography winners

This year’s winners of the photography competition for 1st, 2nd and 3rd year student field classes were announced before Christmas.

First year students again went to Sitges and Barcelona to develop a variety of fieldwork skills, from river monitoring to the urban “rebranding” of Barcelona. (see: Hands-on experience of Catalonia)

The Second year physical geography group went to north eastern Mallorca to carry out projects on wetland hydrology & ecology and coastline geomorphology. (see: Lakes, wetland, dunes and beaches)

Meanwhile a Third year group had visited Vienna in September to study how everyday life in the city is organised. (see: How is urban life really organised?)

Prizes for photographs were awarded to winners from each trip, with several excellent runners-up.


Barcelona (First year):

  • Henry Wigston: "Silent Voices, Loud Hearts" (see above)

Mallorca (Second year) Jointly:

  • Yusuf Khan Cheema: "Somewhere, over the rainbow"
  • Joshua Fawcett: ”Sunset on Alcudia Bay”

Vienna (Third year)

  • Thasneem Zaman: “The earth has music for those who listen …”



  • Humaira Badr: "Una ciudad dividida - a divided city"
  • Kerri McCarton: “wheels on cobble stones”’
  • Charles Chetwood: “A lone olive tree clinging onto a soon to be eroded area of Sitges coastline”


  • Nicholas Maskrey: “Dream on, but don't imagine they'll all come true. When will you realize... Vienna waits for you”
