#WarwickAutumn 2021

Enter the #WarwickAutumn competition by November 28th to be in with the chance of winning one of six £100 Amazon vouchers.

It's the time of year when campus and the surrounding countryside is a dazzling display of colour and beauty, whether you’re enjoying long walks or just lovely views at the moment. We know this year is different, but we encourage you to join in the fun, even if you’re self-isolating.

What's new this year?

We are running a free photo masterclass on 20th October.

This contest is open to all University of Warwick students, staff, and alumni. It is also open this year to everyone living in the Coventry and Warwickshire region! See how to take part as a local resident.

Categories 2021

Do you have anything to share for one of these categories?

1) Mindful Autumn (#MindfulAutumn)

Many of us feel stressed and preoccupied with studies and work pressures in the Autumn. Show us how you stay present and look after yourself at this time of year.

2) Autumn Animals (#AutumnAnimals)

From Rolf the Campus Cat to all the ducks and geese, we share our campus with a lot of animals. Take a photo of (or with!) your favourite animal friend at Warwick.

3) Fresh Start Autumn (#FreshStartAutumn)

Autumns are for new beginnings. Show us a new hobby, a new perspective, or maybe something you're rediscovering now things are slowly returning to normal.

4) Autumn At Home (#AutumnAtHome)

There's no need to brace the cold and the rain to feel Autumnal. Show us how you celebrate the season from the comfort of your own home.

5) Autumn Reels (#AutumnReels)

New for 2021, we want to see what your Autumn looks like on Instagram Reels. Show us your Warwick Autumn with a short video of no more than 30seconds long.

Get tips from a professional

We have teamed up with local professional photographer Jamie Gray, and are offering a free online workshop at 6pm on Wednesday 20th October.

In the workshop, Jamie will critique previous #WarwickAutumn entries and provide tips and tricks to help make your photos pop.

Jamie will also be filming a masterclass video on campus which we will share on the Warwick Presents page during the week of 18th October.
