What is Unisights?

Unisights is a National Campus Photo and Video Competition just for Australian uni students to enter. The competition is sponsored by Canon Australia who are providing more than $16,000 worth of prizes in product, professional mentoring, vouchers and cash for both the winning students and their campus organisations.

This year’s theme for submissions is ‘Share Your Perspective of Student Life’.

You must capture your perspective of the student experience in a still photograph or short video incorporating your campus.


Don't forget the prizes!

UON students have been major category winners for the past two years.

Submissions will be judged by a panel of industry professionals, who will select a shortlist, and ultimately one winner for each category. The shortlisted finalists will have the opportunity to be exhibited at tertiary campuses across Australia in the following calendar year.
