The Centre for Marine Science is seeking photos with short captions depicting marine science activities from UQ marine scientists, whether students or staff. We are keen to celebrate World Oceans Day on 8 June with some interesting stories about marine science at UQ.

Photos and stories (max 200 words) may be used to expand awareness of marine research at UQ through the CMS website, social media, reports or promotional material. All entrants will be asked to sign Photography Waiver Forms entitling CMS to use their photos for such purposes. Submission of a photo for the competition is deemed as acceptance of the terms and conditions

Photos and stories can be from fieldwork, depicting a species you have recenty made an exciting discovery about or even photos of yourself if your story is ground-breaking enough! Previous winners can re-apply.

First prize will be a $100 Co-Op voucher and second prize is a $50 Co-Op voucher. Winners will be judged based on impact (compelling subject matter and caption). 

Send your image file (or Dropbox link) to t.homburg@uq.edu.au by 5pm Friday 2 June 2017 (printed photos cannot be accepted).

Good luck!
