La Trobe's Academic Writing Month is officially here! For the full program and registration details, visit the 2015 #LTUacwrimo page.

This year, the RED team is running an Academic Writing Month photo competition with a trio of themes: "Inspiration/Perspiration/Motivation".

This competition, with a fabulous prize of $150 worth of Co-op Bookshop gift vouchers, is open to all research candidates and staff members of La Trobe University who are signed up for the #LTUacwrimo challenge.

To enter, take a photo that aligns with one of the themes, and submit it via Twitter (full guidelines below). It's as simple as that!

The photo competition's judging criteria are:
  • the quality, composition, and aesthetics of the photo; and 
  • the photo's interpretation of the chosen theme from the trio on offer - "Inspiration/Perspiration/Motivation"
The more creative your interpretation of the themes, the better!

The photos will be judged by a panel of La Trobe staff:
  • Professor Sue Martin (Associate PVC Research, Arts, Social Sciences and Commerce)
  • Mr Mark Engel (La Trobe's Chief Marketing Officer)
  • Mr Rob Chong (Business Partner - Research, Alumni and Advancement)
  • Dr Tseen Khoo (RED team, Graduate Research School)
Entries for the 2015 #LTUacwrimo photo competition must be received by 4.30pm on TUESDAY 24 November.

Competition guidelines and conditions appear below.

Conditions of competition:
  • Photos should be submitted via Twitter. The entry tweets MUST include the #LTUacwrimo tag and the theme you have chosen from the three possibilities as hashtags (Inspiration, Perspiration, or Motivation). 
    • If you don't have a Twitter account and would like to enter the competition, please email your photo entry to t.khoo@latrobe.edu.au, nominating the theme you've chosen, by 4.30pm Friday 20 November. Non-Twitter entries will not be accepted after this day.
  • The photo entry must be a single image, not a collage. 
  • Besides basic photo editing for clarity and size (e.g. contrast/lightening, cropping, and resizing), photos must not be digitally altered. 
  • Photos must be taken during the #LTUacwrimo photo competition period (3-24 November 2015).  
  • Note that all entries to the photo competition may be used for #LTUacwrimo promotion and communications. All images used in this way will acknowledge the photographer.  
  • The judges' decision is final. 
Good luck, and happy snapping!

The winner of the photo competition will be announced on Monday 30 November at the final #LTUacwrimo tweetchat.
