HBLL "Everyday Scientist" Photo Competition 2021: Overview


The Harold B. Lee Library invites you to participate in our first annual photo competition!  Take a photo of anything related to this year's theme and post it to our site.  The best three photos will win CASH PRIZES!!  The winners and several others will be displayed in one of our library galleries. 

Submission Requirements 

Even if you do not wish to submit a photo, come and have fun with us!  Visit our site and enjoy the creativity of fellow students.  And, while you're at it, come visit the second floor of the library and check out our collection of books and other science resources!

We look forward to seeing how you engage with science!


This year our theme is "Everyday Scientists."  Consider how science impacts your life and take a photo that depicts your personal engagement with a science discipline.  We define science broadly, including engineering, geography, math, health sciences, etc. - you can find these subjects on the second floor of the library.  Photos could represent classwork, labs, home projects, observations in the outdoors, etc.


If you would like some help creating fantastic photos, the library has many resources to assist you.  Check out the "Available Resources" tab on this page for links to software training, equipment loans, etc.
