The University of the West of England has taken one of the Gold Sponsorship slots for this year's competition and will be promoting competition entry to their 35,000 students and staff.
UWE Bristol has sponsored a new 'My Neighbourhood' prize category for this year's smartphone competition, to encourage communities across the city to capture 24 hours of life on their doorstep, where the best photos can often be found.
Two UWE graduates will be offered intern positions with the '24 Hours in Bristol' organising team and, as competition weekend takes place just after Freshers' Week, the event offers a great opportunity for Bristol's students to explore the city whilst getting to know their fellow students.
Roger Conlon, Deputy Dean of the UWE's Faculty of Arts, Creative Industries and Education said: "UWE Bristol is pleased to sponsor this exciting photographic event to showcase the best of our city and its talents. This is one of many examples of how UWE Bristol’s ‘City Campus’ collaborates with Bristol’s creative potential."

Dr Shawn Sobers, Associate Professor of Lens based Media at UWE says: "Bristol has a population of nearly half a million, making it the largest city in the South West. It is also one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse cities in Britain. What makes your neighbourhood special? We are looking for eye-catching images reflecting life and events in your community."
