Lincoln College

Elman Poole Photographic Prize 2013-14

NB This is an annual photography competition open to all current students, Fellows and staff of Lincoln College, funded by the generosity of Lincoln alumnus Dr Elman Poole (1953).

This year’s theme is ‘Lincoln Icons’ 

The theme should be broadly interpreted as an image of a person, object or landmark that respresents Lincoln for you. This could be anything from a feature of one of the College buildings, to a person that you feel represents the character of Lincoln College.  Or even the College Imp! The winning photo from last year was used on our popular Christmas card (see below) and sold hundreds of copies!

Competition rules:

  • Entrants may submit up to two entries as prints (7x5 inches) or electronic images, in colour or in black and white.
  • The winner will receive a £100 cash prize and his or her photo may be printed on a Lincoln greeting card.
  • The runner-up will receive a £50 cash prize.

Full rules are available here. Please read these before you enter the competition.

How to enter:

  • Take a photo that illustrates the theme given.
  • Submit each entry with your name, email address and contact telephone number to: Bev Cousins, Alumni & Communications Officer, Lincoln College Development Office (
