University of Sheffield Photo Soc

Health Sciences Library Competition

Hi Guys,

Some of you will have seen this on the Facebook group already but:

Dear Students,

We, at the Health Sciences Library in the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, are running a photography competition for our users. The rationale being that we wish to decorate the silent study room in the library to make this a more pleasant working environment. Winning entries will thus be displayed here.

As this room is windowless we wish to “bring the outside in”, therefore we have chosen this as the competition theme. We very much hope that you will enter this competition and, therefore, contribute to improving the refurbished library environment both for yourselves and future users. If you have been on electives please consider submitting photographs from your time away.

In addition to having your photographs displayed there are some great prizes to be won.

1st prize: #50 Amazon voucher
2nd Prize: #35 Amazon voucher
3rd Prize: #25 Amazon voucher
5 runners up: #10 Amazon voucher

Once you have read the terms and conditions below, please submit your entries on the broad theme of bringing the outside in to: before 10th June 2013.

We intend to enlarge your images for display so please submit photographs of the highest resolution possible.

We very much look forward to viewing your entries.

Kind Regards,

The Health Sciences Library Team
