Dr Shamil Khairov from the University of Glasgow is the winner of our 2021 Images of Hope competition.
The Images of Hope competition was developed by U21’s outgoing Provost Professor Bairbre Redmond to bring the network together and share positivity across the globe. Given four headings - ‘resilience’, ‘community’, ‘creativity’ and ‘solidarity’, entrants were asked to collect and share images of the affirmation, kindness and optimism that they have seen or experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We received over 200 exceptional entries to the competition, and an experienced panel of judges considered the originality of composition, the visual impact of the image, the connection of the image to the competition theme and its narrative, and the creative delivery and innovative approach of the entry. Congratulations to our winners!
