The NCCPE is delighted to announce the winning and commended entries of our Images of Public Engagement 2018 competition.

We launched the Images of Public Engagement competition as part of our 10th anniversary celebrations this year, inviting people to share images and captions of inspiring engagement activities, culture change initiatives, and of people involved in public engagement in UK higher education.

Over 170 entries were submitted, with our judging panel selecting 3 category winners and 11 commended entries.

Paul Manners, NCCPE Director, said "The Images of Public Engagement Competition 2018 provides a wonderful snapshot of the vitality and diversity of public engagement practice in UK Higher Education. We want to thank everyone who entered for providing such a personal and thoughtful illumination of what public engagement means to them, and for reminding us of the difference it can make, inside and outside the university.”
