Themed Challenge: Winter on Campus

Winter is here and once again, PhotoClub is teaming up with UNSW! This time, we are looking for your best photos of winter on campus.

While cold and dark are associated with winter, the season also brings out colours like white and grey.

Whether it’s the dormant trees on the Main Walkway, the cool interior colours or the white-as-snow Jasper the Samoyed playing on Library Lawn, be sure to FREEZE the moments that capture winter on campus!

Prizes are plentiful!
1. $200 Georges Gift Card
2. $100 Georges Gift Card
3. Charing Cross Print

rewards also include shout-outs on UNSW’s Insta account!

Some Tips and Hints from Our Judges

  1. A good and strong photograph usually does not need a title or caption to ‘tell’ us what’s going on. Think about what you want to convey – take into consideration the composition and framing of your photo.2. Think about the various techniques you can use, such as playing with lighting or textures.

    3. Think outside of the box. This month’s theme allows you to be creative and push the boundaries.

    Only have a phone? No Problem!
    We don’t care what device you use. Know its limitations and work within the confines.
