#LTUacwrimo photo competition - "What helps me write"

Photo by chancema |
During the month of November, for #LTUacwrimo, the RED Unit is running a photo competition with the theme "What helps me write".

This competition, with a fabulous prize of a $100 voucher, is open to all research students and staff members of La Trobe University who are signed up for the #LTUacwrimo challenge.

Your photo could be of your favourite work-space, preferred writing 'fuel' (e.g. coffee, walks), most indispensable gadgets, or some other aspect of your writing routine.

Think creatively, capture it beautifully!

The photos will be judged by a panel of La Trobe specialists:
  • Dr Maryanne Aitken (Director, Research Services)
  • Tess Flynn (Manager, Photography and Digital Imaging)
  • Rebecca Norris (Manager, Online Community)
The photo competition's judging criteria are:
  • the quality, composition, and aesthetics of the photo; and 
  • the photo's interpretation of the theme, "What helps me write".
Entries for the #LTUacwrimo photo competition must be received by C.O.B. on Monday 24 November 2014. 

Competition guidelines and conditions appear below.
