The Screenshot 2015 student photo competition attracted over 70 entries.
This year’s competition was run in association with Rosemary Laing: transportation. In the works in that exhibition, Rosemary Laing explores relationships between technology, time and place. She is particularly interested in showing places of transition or movement in her photographs, places that we move through but never inhabit for very long, like airports.
Students were asked to submit a photograph or a series of photographs (maximum three images) that explores a site of transition or movement, and to think about intriguing places and spaces from their everyday environment – inside or outside – such as entrances, corridors, playgrounds, driveways, parking stations.
Prize-winners were selected by the Gallery’s senior curator, photographs, Judy Annear.
