Year Two student, James Marvin has just been announced as one of three winners of the Association for Photography within Higher Education (APHE) Photomeet Bursary.

The APHE exists to support and develop the study of photography within Higher Education. It is committed to excellence in practice, theory and research and provides a critical forum within which to discuss and debate a broad range of matters relevant to contemporary photographic culture and educational practice.

I'm hoping to use the weekend to make new contacts and network with as many people as possible.

Winner, James Marvin

The bursary will see James attending Offspring Photomeet 2015, which takes place later this month, in London. The two-day event is a rare opportunity for professional photographers and lens-based artists to discuss their work with the best of the photography industry. James will receive eight one-to-one portfolio reviews and have the opportunity to network, listen to talks, and look at showcases of work.

James told us: "I found out about this bursary through Linda Marchant, one of the wonderful NTU photography tutors. I had to submit a portfolio of five to six photographs of my work along with a photographers CV. I am hoping to use the weekend in London to make new contacts and network with as many people as possible. This will be my first portfolio review and it appears to be a high profile event with some key players in the photography industry. It should be a great platform to push my work outside of the University."

Linda, a Senior Lecturer, commented: "We promote opportunities such as the Photomeet Bursary and other competitions, as they are invaluable for students in developing their professional practice and networks. James is a worthy winner, who will make the most of the advice and expertise he will gain from the portfolio reviews with professionals at the top of the industry."
