HARMAN technology Ltd announces the winners of the UK Student Competition 2014 entitled “Motion”. The annual competition for UK photography students attracted a record entry for 2014.

So many that it took the judges two sittings before they could decide which had met the Brief and complied with the competition Terms and Conditions. After long deliberation and several rejections the winners were finally chosen.

Steven Brierley, Director of Sales & Marketing at HARMAN said, “We have always had marvellous support from tutors and technicians in the colleges. It is no surprise that we continue to receive so many exceptional prints entered for our competitions. This year we were very nearly overwhelmed by the large number of entries that we had to judge from. I think the winners have shown excellent thought and technique.”
