As You See It! Photography Competition

We want to celebrate how science, health and medicine impact our daily lives at work, home and play, and the impact these areas have on our ANU community. 

The As You See It! photography competition is open to all ANU alumni, staff and students with an original photo. Images will be shortlisted by a selection committee, with the top photos from each category going to a public vote during August.

The winning image from each category will form the 2024 College of Science and College of Health and Medicine annual calendar.
