Capture Our Transformation Imagination and Win an i-Pad!


Our popular annual prize photography competition has been launched again, and the theme of this year’s contest is – surprise surprise! – transforming the Library.

Since 2010 the Library has run photography/image competitions and this year the focus will be offering a fantastic opportunity to University staff and students to produce the images that will be used in the refurbished Library. The general theme will be ‘Transforming the Library’ and is open to individual interpretation. This competition provides a great opportunity for those chosen to have their work displayed to a large number of people in the prestigious state of the art Library refurbishment which will be completed over the summer for grand re-opening in October.

By way of further incentive, first prize is an i-Pad, with the two next best runners-up receiving Amazon vouchers.

Entries should be sent as an e-mail attachment to Steve Corn, Loughborough University Library, ( He can be contacted on 01509 222338 for any questions relating to the competition. All entries will be judged by the Library’s Marketing and Publications Group and bluu, the building company responsible for the refurbishment. They will consider a range of factors including composition, technical ability, originality and interpretation of the brief.

The competition will be open until midnight on the 17th May 2013.
