Budding photographers still have time to enter their inspirational images of the North East to a Northumbria University competition.

To launch the University’s new Events and Conferencing brand, Inspirational Spaces, the competition invites photographers to capture the region’s iconic landmarks and beautiful landscapes.

Northumbria has worked with Newcastle-based marketing agency, Cravens, on the Inspirational Spaces campaign, which showcases the new look of the University’s award-winning venues.

With an arena as large as three basketball courts, elegant period architecture and cutting-edge design and technology, the on-campus facilities at Northumbria University provide an inspirational setting not only for its vibrant student population, but also for businesses and community groups.

Lucy Winskell, Pro Vice-Chancellor, Business and Engagement at Northumbria University, said: “We’re immensely proud of our campus, and have built a strong reputation with local, national and international events organisers who work closely with our team to deliver first class conferences and events here in Newcastle.

“Inspirational Spaces has been launched to align our events and conferencing marketing materials with our contemporary new buildings and facilities, and we hope to welcome many more businesses through our doors over the coming years.”

In order to capture the Inspirational Spaces on campus, Cravens commissioned north east photographer, Dan Prince, to shoot some of Northumbria University’s key locations.
