The 2021 Fenner School Photography Competition is open for submissions. If you’ve been involved with The Fenner School in 2021 as a student, academic, professional staff member or affiliate, and you’ve captured a moment you’d like to share with us that speaks to this year’s theme, send it in!
Photos will be exhibited at the End of Year Party (December 3rd), and they will also be displayed with full credits on The Fenner School social media accounts over 2021 and 2022. You are welcome to elect to not have your photo featured on Fenner social media.
You are free to interpret this theme as you wish, but for inspiration: you might have returned to your home country or your family home over COVID. You may be working to return knowledge to Country, or return a story, or your story, to a place or community. Maybe you have documented the return of life to razed bushland, or the return of water to wetlands, or the phases of the moon as it waxes and wanes in a cycle. Perhaps you are returning species to their lands, or you’re returning to campus. However this theme speaks to you, we want to see it, and welcome your story.
Photos must be of a high resolution. You can find out more about how to do this here.
Photos need to be attached to an email to Vicki Miller at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Include in the body of your email:
- your name;
- your staff/student number;
- a short bio about you and your role at The Fenner School, and;
- maximum 150 words per photo, about each entry.
You may enter a maximum of two photos into the competition.
If you do not want your photos featured on Fenner social media, please say so in your email.
