What is the Student Clique bi-monthly photo contest?

Student Clique will be running 5 bi-monthly photo contests a year (February/March, April/May, June/July, August/September, October/November). Each bi-monthly contest has a prize package with lots of goodies from our sponsors and Fairfax Media.

Each contest has an open theme and students are asked to select the best photos from their body of work to show off their photographic skills.
