If you are stuck, you can search for quotes/ ideas using these links:

2. Take an awesome photograph that relates to your quote!  The photo can be literal, abstract, metaphorical – in fact anything visual that is inspired by the chosen quote.

  • High quality cameras are available from the student services desk of the college, but images can be photographed on any digital camera, smart phone or even a tablet. You should ensure that photo dimensions are set to the highest possible size and resolution available on the relevant device.
  • Please photograph your images in HORIZONTAL (landscape) format only!

  • Feel free to submit as many entries as you like.

3. Email your submission (photos and quotes) to:

The Outcome
The best 8 high resolution images (2 about education, 2 about journalism, 2 about advertising & 2 from business) will be selected by a panel of staff and students (represented by the student representative council). The quote that inspired each image will be set into the image using the approved Macleay College typefaces by the digital design lecturer Jason Gemenis.

These finished artworks will then be printed in large format and hung around the college as a celebration of the creativity and community spirit that is an essential part Macleay College.

More information:

  • The selection process will be concluded by week 4. Printing will follow with artworks due to be hung around the college in week 7.
