Rediscover Oxford Photography Competition – WINNERS ANNOUNCED!
At the beginning of June we asked you to show us how you’re enjoying Oxford this summer and to show that, despite restrictions, Oxford is an alive and thriving place to live, work and visit.
And so we partnered with Oxford City Council to launch a photography competition culminating in an exhibition across the city and at Oxford’s Covered Market in August 2021.
We absolutely loved seeing all the entries and got plenty of inspiration for things to do and see – we hope you do too!
The winners have now been picked and between the 1st-31st August you can see the four winning images in the windows of 119-120 Fourth Avenue, Covered Market (the old Two Foot Nothing unit) and 37 runners up in bus stops all across Oxford.
