Congratulations to Rayane for placing in the top 12 out of 240 entries. She has won a C-Type digital print of her work and the image will be showcased in BA photography’s Socket magazine. Tutor, Jemma Crozier said: “Rayane is extremely talented, she has such an eye for composition and aesthetics and a real creative flair. Her photographs bring people so much joy and it’s a real privilege to see how far she has come. Can’t wait to see what she produces next.”


First-year Media student Rayane Sutcliffe has been shortlisted for the London Metropolitan University 2021 Photography Competition’ Your People, Your Places, Your Things.

To enter, students had to submit a photograph of their favourite people (a portrait), place (a landscape) or thing (a still life). The top 24 shortlisted entries will be included in an online digital exhibition hosted by the School of Art, Architecture and Design. There will be C-Type digital prints of the work courtesy of sponsors Metro Imaging for the 12 finalists. The overall winner will be given a one-day shoot in the school’s industry-standard studio in Aldgate, London.

The competition will be judged by a panel including London Met Photography BA alumni, Angela Blažanović and Giulia Simonotti; photographers and lecturers, David George and James Russell Cant; and a panel of current Photography BA students.

James Russell Cant, course leader for the Photography BA programme said, “we love our students to explore photography from a broad range of approaches that excite them. It can be making images using our industry-standard digital equipment and studios or using our excellent colour and black-and-white darkroom facilities or really exploring the digital and physical boundaries of what photography can be. Whatever approach is adopted we always celebrate our students’ diverse passions, interests and identities. This competition is an opportunity to see the world from the perspective of the next generation of students across the country and to celebrate their work.”

Good luck, Rayane!
