Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages and Linguistics


MML Photography Competition

Photography Competition 2014

The Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages invites you to enter its annual photography competition.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for images that capture an element of your experience of MML at Cambridge and beyond. This might be an image of your day-to-day life as a student here or a photo taken on your Year Abroad or on other travels during your degree. We are hoping you will show us what you love about being an MML student through your photos. Our ‘theme’ is deliberately wide to offer you the opportunity to be creative.

You can view some of the shortlisted entries for 2012 at Flickr ( and for 2013 at
