Design a new greeting card for the University of Melbourne
Enter the new student competition to design one of this year’s University of Melbourne’s greeting cards. You’ll be in the running to win a $750 Prepaid Visa card, and have your design credited on the back of the card.
Each year the University’s bespoke season’s greeting cards are made available to staff for distribution to their stakeholders. This year, the winning student card will also be sold to the University staff, students and visitors through the University’s Pop Up Shop at Gate 10.
Theme: The world’s contracted thus
In line with the theme of ‘The world’s contracted thus’, we’re looking for unique perspectives of our iconic buildings that make the University a special place to live, work or study.
The design theme is taken from The Sun Rising, John Donne’s equally iconic love poem to his mistress:
"In that the world's contracted thus.
To warm the world, that's done in warming us.
Shine here to us, and thou art everywhere;
This bed thy center is, these walls, thy sphere.
We’re not saying that we love our campus this much. But, hey, perhaps we actually do! Show us how much!
You can depict your submission in a creative way in any 2D medium: photographs, watercolour paintings, sketches, digital design, screen printing. In fact anything that’s able to be able to be reproduced as a greeting card.
You’ll also need to provide a 50-word summary of how your design fits the theme to be included on the back of the card.
The judging panel will be looking for unique artwork that reflects the theme.
The winning submission as judged by the panel will receive $750 Prepaid Visa card.
Note: the University may publish the winner's name on the University's social media channels and Staff Hub, Staff News and other University communications channels for promotional purposes.
Applications close midnight Monday 30 September.
