Explore CYC1

CYC updated 2016 small

 The "Capture Your Campus" (CYC) Photo Competition was an EXPLORE-2014-funded project (see ;ogo above, left) and ran in conjunction with NUI Galway's PhotoSoc. IMPORTANT: the competition element of this project ended on 28 February 2014. However, if you have a camera phone, point-and-shoot or DSLR, you can still help showcase what's best about NUI Galway. We are looking for the best photos of people, places and activities on campus. We have a range of categories in which to submit your photo/s (see below). Photos may be taken in any format, but must be submitted digitally. Photos must be current (i.e., taken within the last five years); you can submit as many as you like. We may use your submissions in campus publications or online. Some sample entries, and photos from our exhibition launch are hereFull terms and conditions hereEnquiries to:
