Internship Office Photo Competition 2022-2023

We are pleased to announce the launch of the 2022-2033 Internship Office Photo Competition. We are inviting all University of Oxford students who take part in internships facilitated or funded through the Internship Office in the 2022-2023 academic year to submit original photos that best represent their internship experience, accompanied by a short description. The winners will be awarded with a high street voucher worth £100.


Entrants can submit photos in the following categories:

  1. You on your internship
    This category is for photos which can show you in your place of work, with colleagues, with your hosts, in the country and location of your internships. Pretty much anything goes as long as you are somewhere in the picture.
  2. Your journey to work
    This category is for photos taken on your way to your internship (plane, train, car, cycle, or while you are walking). For those of you undertaking a remote working experience,  you are going to have to get creative and think about your surroundings (gardens, houses, corridors, parks)

Show us what your internship looks like

For both categories, please submit original photos taken by you that show a visual representation of your working environment during your internship. We want to see your internship experience through your eyes, and we are especially looking for images depicting you as the intern and your journey to your workplace. We recognise that many students are taking part in remote working internships, which means that creativity is key.

Describe your experience

Along with your photo submission, all entrants should submit text of up to 50 words explaining the image, giving us context of your internship experience, and specifying the corresponding category for each photo. Images sent without the accompanying text will be disqualified.

Rules and tips

There are two ways to enter the competition:

  1. You can enter by filling in the internship feedback form which will be emailed to you by the Internship Office team at the end of your placement. Any photographs uploaded into the form will be entered into the competition, using 50 words of the text you have provided about your internship. If you wish to share photos that you do not want to be entered into the competition, please email
  2. You can send your photos and text by email to with the items as a file attachment or using a file transfer service such as WeTransfer or Dropbox.

You may submit a maximum of 10 photos to the competition, in one category for your internship. If you are taking part in more than one internship, and these fit different categories, you may enter a maximum of 10 per internship. Photos sent without the accompanying explanatory text of up to 50 words will be disqualified.

We are looking for original photographs that communicate your internship experience in an interesting way. Creativity and imagination will be rewarded.

Entries close at 17:00 (BST) on Monday, 18 September 2023.

The winning entries will be decided by a selection panel at the Careers Service. The winner of each category will be awarded with a high street voucher worth £100.
