Future Water, an interdisciplinary research institute, hosted in the Faculty of Engineering & the Built Environment, was launched at an event held on 8 September 2016.

As part of the launch, staff and students and the general public were invited to submit photographs for the Water and Me photographic competition. Over 100 photographs were received. The winners were announced at the launch. The two judges were Svea Josephy and Jean Brundrit, both senior lectures in photography at the Michaelis School of Fine Art. They said, “Generally there was a high standard of submissions, so well done to everyone. There was a good range of entries from calls to actions to abstract images.”

All photographs submitted can be viewed here.
