We’re challenging you to think beyond traditional ideas and create the unexpected; to reframe how you see the world around you. We’re inviting you to submit an image that shows light in an original and innovative way.
Using equipment hired (for free) from the Design Technology Store on campus (the MDS AV Hub on the Auckland campus), or using your own, we challenge you to explore light in an original and innovative way. This can be natural or artificial; illuminating and enhancing a subject or even the subject itself. Clichéd images should be avoided. Digital manipulation in post is permitted, but to only enhance the authenticity of the moment captured. Details on applicable adjustments see below under the heading Digital Manipulation*.
Open to all students at Billy Blue College of Design, Torrens University Australia and Media Design School, you will need to sign up to Frontier to participate and submit. All entries will be shown in the gallery below and later judged for prize-winning submissions. See prizes below. Judges will be selected from each campus to ensure fairness. For more information.
