Caught Reading Competition

My name’s Miss Swift and I’m your new librarian
Today, I’m launching a new competition in the LRC. I would like you to send me an interesting and unusual (appropriate) photo of yourself reading a book (either borrowed from the LRC or one from home). The more unusual, the better! Prizes will be awarded to the best photos, with the top prize being a £10 Meadowhall voucher.
Try and make your photo as interesting and unusual as possible. Some ideas:
  • Take a photo of yourself reading a book whilst doing your hobby. Play football? Take a photo of yourself reading in your kit on the pitch.
  • You could take a photo of yourself reading a book whilst on a day trip. Off to London? Take a photo of yourself reading a book on the London Eye.
  • How about a photo of yourself reading in an interesting outfit? Your sister’s old prom dress (ask first!) or an old Halloween costume perhaps.
  • One entry per student.
  • One pupil per photo. (No group shots please.)
  • Appropriate photos only. No:
    • Offensive photos (for example, photos depicting weapons or swearing)
    • Inappropriate clothing (no swimwear please!)
    • Unsafe photos. Please don’t do anything dangerous when taking your photo.
  • Email your entries to me at f.swift@oakwood.ac. (Please send large, high resolution images.)
  • The deadline is Thursday, 13th February (the day we break up for half-term) and winners will be selected on the first day back.
Looking forward to seeing your entries!
