Crichton Grounds by R.B Photography

As part of the celebrations taking place to mark 20 years of the University of Glasgow in Dumfries students past and present are being invited to compete for a spot in a special photography exhibition in the town.

Organised by Dr Marian Krawczyk, an Adam Smith Fellow at the School of Interdisciplinary Studies, the competition aims to create an exhibition which will illustrate the past, present and future of the University of Glasgow at Dumfries Campus.

Marian said:  “We know our students are smart and creative so this is a great opportunity to showcase their skills and our beautiful campus through photography.  We’re looking for images that have something to do with the campus’ past, present or future so there is huge scope for anyone with a good eye, a camera or smartphone and a bit of imagination.
“We are also asking for a 150 words that explain what the picture shows, what it means to the person who took it and how it connects to the campus.  The chosen images will be exhibited in Dumfries and everyone who attends will be asked to vote for their favourite.  The people who took the favourite images will win a small prize so there is a real incentive to enter.
“We have been here for 20 years and we hope to be here for many years to come.  That’s worth celebrating and this exhibition gives all of our students the chance to take part.”

So if you are a current or former student of the University of Glasgow in Dumfries and you think you are up to the challenge please submit your high resolution JPEG images and 150 words to

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 31 July and the exhibition has its opening reception at 7.00pm in the Bakers Oven, Dumfries on Thursday 26 September.  It is open from 11.00am to 2.00pm on Friday 27 and Saturday 28 September.
