Falmouth Photography graduate wins prestigious national award

Recent BA(Hons) Photography graduate, Toby Millinder, has won the British Institute of Professional Photographers' (BIPP) Tom Gowar Memorial Prize.

The BIPP is the premier qualifying body for professional image makers in the UK with over 3500 members covering every type of photography.

Toby was presented with this prestigious student award and a prize of £750, which he plans to put towards a visit to China later on this year where he will work on a new and challenging photographic project.

Building on the long-established success of BA(Hons) Photography, University College Falmouth is launching three new photography courses this September to coincide with the opening of a £7million Photography Centre at its Tremough Campus, the flagship, 21st Century cornerstone of the Combined Universities in Cornwall initiative.

University College Falmouth is a founding partner in the Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC), a unique initiative to promote regional economic regeneration through higher education. The CUC is funded mainly by the European Union (Objective One), the South West Regional Development Agency, and the Higher Education Funding Council for England, with support from Cornwall County Council.

The new courses are two BA(Hons) degrees – in Marine & Natural History Photography and Press Photography – and an MA in Professional Photography for those already established in the profession.

For further information and to apply for this September, please visit, email or telephone Admissions on 01326 213730.

For further information contact Jilly Easterby, Head of Public Affairs, University College Falmouth on 01326 213792 or email

The Objective One Programme for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has invested in the Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC) project, both Phase 1 and Phase 2, through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the European Social Fund (ESF). University College Falmouth is a partner of the CUC.
