Share your most inspiring photo with us!

The photographic art competition is open to all currently enrolled students to submit photos, based on the theme ‘The Canopy’. These submissions would be shortlisted and used as art installations in various locations within the new UOWD campus.

We are looking for striking digital images to celebrate the local UOW campuses (Dubai, Sydney CBS, Western Sydney, Wollongong and Innovation campuses) and their surroundings, with a focus on “The Canopy”

The Canopy is defined as the in-between space, it filters throughout the building connecting levels and programs together. It is in these in-between spaces where individuals cross paths, connect and interact. These areas foster creativity and breed student life. They are rich, diverse and become the heart of the campus building. Canopy space is about connecting to the nature outside the building, bringing that nature inside the building and creating light/texture effects through the application of various materials. The canopy should be inspired from the local surroundings. For Wollongong Students, the Canopy is the campus & local Illawarra. For Dubai Students, the Canopy is where the urban environment meets the original desert and coastal landscapes.
