The Internship Office Photo Competition 2021

We are pleased to announce that the University of Oxford Internship Office Photo Competition will be taking place once again in 2021.

We are inviting all University of Oxford students who take part in internships facilitated or funded through the Internship Office in the 2020-2021 academic year to submit original and interesting photos that best represent their internship experience, accompanied by a short description.

Show us what your internship looks like

We want to see your internship experience through your eyes, but we are especially looking for images depicting you as the intern. Please submit original entries that show a visual representation of your working environment during your internship. We recognise that many students are taking part in remote working internships this year, which means that creativity is key!

Describe your experience

Along with your photo entry, please submit text of up to 50 words explaining the image, and giving us some context of your internship experience. Images sent without the accompanying text will be discounted.
