To mark International Darwin Day and to celebrate the famous Salopian scientist Charles Darwin, our Agriculture and Environment staff launched an intra-university photography competition, where students could win a £50 Amazon Voucher.
The brief was: ‘intellectual bravery, perpetual curiosity, scientific thinking, hunger for truth.’
In the run-up to the occasion, we shared an entry a day on our social media platforms, and the winner of the competition is to be announced soon!
