We are delighted to announce the results of the 2022 Girton Springtime Photo Competition, as part of Girton Conversations and supporting Green Girton. The competition attracted over 60 entries from Fellows, students and staff and the overall quality of the photos was very high!

The panel of judges (Carol Adlam, Amy Donovan, Dennis Grube, Hilary Marlow and Jeremy West) was impressed with the variety of interpretations of the theme and the excellent standard of many entries, which made the task of judging very hard!
