In early 2020 the University of Birmingham ran a photo competition for all volunteers and refugees involved in Community Sponsorship in the UK. A number of entries were received, with a winner announced for each group. This online exhibition is a showcase of all of the photos that were entered into the competition.
Volunteer group entries
Volunteer group members were invited to enter the competition by taking a photo on the theme of “What you enjoy about being a CSS volunteer”. The Winning entry was submitted by Karen with the following caption:
“Very proud moment to be at this young man’s graduation from Language School. Lots of dedication and hard work, many early mornings, long days and multiple bus rides with a great result. As the Principle said: “thank you for being a wonderful student, we have so enjoyed having you.”
The following photos were also entered into the ‘volunteer group’ category.
Refugee family entrees
Refugee Family members were invited to enter the competition by taking a photo on the theme of “what makes me feel at home”. The Winning entry was submitted by Mohammad with the following caption:
“I feel home because we celebrated my daughter’s birthday with friends. It was an amazing and enjoyable day. We shared food and lots of cakes!”
