Postdoc Academy


Getting out for our daily exercise can be a lovely opportunity to appreciate the stillness and beauty of Cambridge's empty spaces.

So we thought we'd celebrate the beauty that can be found even in difficult times by running a friendly postdoc photography competition.

The rules:

  • Snap a photo of something you see that captures "Cambridge's empty spaces"
  • You must take the photo when you are already out for daily exercise or essential tasks, please do not make a separate trip out for this
  • Send your photo to us at by Wednesday 6 May
  • We'll announce the winner on Wednesday 13 May!

Happy snapping! Stay safe.

If you're looking for some inspiration, the following example is from OPdA's Karina Prasad:
