  • Entry is free.
  • Submissions are open until Friday the 5th of April, 2019 (Friday of Week 6).
  • Submit your full quality image file at https://bit.ly/2Evnusv (preferred) or send it to [email protected], along with your name, caption, photo title (if applicable), your Instagram handle (if you want to be tagged by the JACdigital account), and brief details of any editing, (e.g. cropped and changed contrast in Photoshop).
  • Open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students in the UQ School of Communication & Arts.
  • Photos can be taken with any device (though DSLRs are encouraged)
  • Use of Photoshop is fine, but should be declared and changes briefly described in the submission email.

  • Do not change resolution or pixel size.
  • Caption each photo (50 words or less). Captions will be included with any print copies and also on the JACdigital Instagram account.
  • Include your Instagram handle if you wish to be tagged from the JACdigital Instagram.
  • Photos should be cropped to standard ratios (6:4, 4:3, 16:9, or 1:1 [square]). Most cameras will photograph in these ratios, but be careful when cropping that you don’t make it a non-standard shape.
