Julia Stankiewicz wins the Grand Prize for the Social Justice Photography Competition 2018
The competition is part of the The University of Manchester's Ethical Grand Challenges programme which aims to help develop socially responsible graduates.
All undergraduate students at the university were invited to take part in the competition by submitting a photo and caption about an issue of social justice that matters to them.
A short list of 5 photos went through to a public vote on Instagram, Facebook and at an exhibition in University Place.
Over 2,800 students, staff and members of the public voted and the Grand Prize was awarded to Julia Stankiewicz from the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering for her photo ‘Invisible.’
