Learning, Teaching and Library Photo Competition 2022

We are pleased to announce the winners of our inaugural Learning, Teaching and Library Photo competition.  Congratulations to you all!

There has been a rich and diverse catalogue of truly unique subjects and special moments captured in the frames. Our judging panel consisted of five specialists in various fields around the university who made their choices individually then as a group. 

From LTL and Living Heritage, it was an honour to bring all the talent hiding in the Lincoln University woodwork out in to view, something which the institution should collectively be very proud of. 

Thank you again so much to everyone for being involved and offering your work and energy. Karawhiua āno! Let's do it again!
