We were delighted to receive so many stunning photographs for our Biodiversity Photo Competition and the exhibition is now on display in the hallway of the Berrow Foundation Building. The photos submitted by students, staff and alumni showcase the green spaces and wildlife in the College, around Oxford and beyond.

It is with great pleasure that we announce our winner, Carla Abella Rodríguez, visiting PhD student in English, for her eye-catching photo of a bumblebee diving into a purple crocus in Grove Quad.

Lauren Fox (2023) has been awarded the runner up prize for her four photos showing a diversity of wildlife in Oxford and Lincoln, including: a beautiful peacock at the Harcourt Arboretum; an inquisitive squirrel spotted at the EPA Centre; a trio of beautiful deer spotted on a snowy walk in the Oxfordshire countryside; and a fox spotted one evening near Ewert House in Summertown.

Special mentions have been awarded to: Jenny Lunnon (1987); Skaistė Aleksandravičiūtė (2011); Robin Cooke (1978); Katherine Reiss (2019) and John Hodges (1970).

We wish to thank all who submitted photos and special congratulations to all of our winners.

All are invited to see the full collection of photos on display in the hallway of the Berrow Foundation Building.
