OUSA Photography Competition ~ Semester TWO

OUSA Photography Competition ~ Semester TWO

Sick of seeing the same old “selfies” and snap chats? Know you can do better? So show us how in three easy steps. Step one, get your camera and get snapping. Step two, submit your top three shots, and step three, sit back, and wait for the prize money to roll in. Simple as. There is no theme so we will literally except anything (that you would be comfortable also showing your grandma).


This isn't the World Press Photo Awards, or the Sony World Photography Awards, not even the National Geographic Photo Contest. We won't be using Kodak Ultra Premium paper to print your images on, or getting Mike Hollman into judge the competition. We will try to get all images displayed during Art Week (6th August) but no promises. We will try to get winning entries published in the Critic, but again no promises. And we don't tend to communicate with you, or give feedback. Sorry, it's not that sort of comp.

So if any of the above isn't for you, then best to steer clear. This one is for fun. No theme, or criteria, just send us your best 3 in and someone is going to win both the bragging rights and $100. Enjoy.


Submissions will be taken from 1st July -  31st July, 2018.
