Each year, students show Morgan Stanley what the world looks like through their eyes in our annual photo competition. This year’s theme, Places and Spaces, focused on the various places and spaces you live, work and travel to.

A total of 15 photos – five per region - were shortlisted by our panel of judges and progressed to the final round. University students from the three participating regions (EMEA, Asia-Pacific, and North America) were then encouraged to vote throughout the months of March and April. The 2017 Morgan Stanley University Photo Competition voting phase is now closed and the winning photos are displayed below.

The top three entries per region have been awarded with one of the following prizes:

First prize: Apple Watch Sport
Second prize: FitBit Activity Tracker
Third prize: US$100 or equivalent local currency in Amazon vouchers

Also, a special Global Winner has been selected from across all the entries.
