On 21st September 2017 (UWC Day), HM Queen Sonja, our patron, is coming to visit our campus. We are designing a programme, in tandem with our partners in education in Sogn og Fjordane, on the theme of ‘inclusion’.

As part of our anniversary celebrations, we are planning a photographic competition in Naustet open to current UWC RCN students (incoming first years and second years), alumni, our partner schools in SoF invited to participate in the event, UWC RCN staff and their children, week 38 Leirskule visitors, the staff and week 38 patients at the Rehabilitation Centre, and members of the Sogn og Fjordane Red Cross.

Once all entries are in, a team of Hana Le Cam (UWC RCN Visual Arts Teacher), Simon Ramsay (UWC RCN member of staff), Ragnhild Follevåg (RKHR member of staff) and Leon Muller (Chair of the UWC RCN Student Council) will decide on a short list based on the following criteria:

• creativity and originality;
• effective composition;
• artistic merit;
• content (relevance to the theme of ‘Inclusion’).

Hana and Simon will then mount and display between 12 to 15 shortlisted photographs as an exhibition on the theme of ‘Inclusion’ in Naustet. The exhibition will be formally opened by Majesty Queen Sonja as the first part of her tour of the campus – and the exhibition will turn, at a later stage, into a two-year exhibition in a different space at RCN.


Theme: ‘Inclusion’
We invite one submission of digital photography per person;
Please email your full-size image directly to Simon Ramsay at nc15sram@staff.rcnuwc.no between now and the 31st August with the subject line of ‘Exhibition on Inclusion’. Please include:

• Your full name and country/countries of origin;
• The title of your photograph;
• The location of the photograph;
• A maximum of 100 words in English explaining why you feel that your photograph captures the theme of ‘Inclusion’ – these will be included in the exhibition for those shortlisted.
