Library Awareness Week Contest

Create an original artifact for a chance to win a Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera!

Your studies matter most; due to exam week, we have extended the Library Awareness Week’s “Win a Fuji Instax Mini 8 Camera Contest” so that you can both study and submit an artifact.  We are overjoyed by your interest in the contest and look forward to selecting a winner soon.  For all applicants who managed to submit their artifacts by the original due date, you are welcome to re-submit or make any edits over the next two weeks, especially if you felt rushed to submit your work.



(noun) an object created by a human being that provides concrete evidence of that person’s thoughts, values and viewpoints (adapted from Oxford Dictionaries, 2016).

Contest Details:

To participate in this contest, create an artifact that reflects your personal response to the question: “What is originality?”

Take an abstract idea, turn it into something concrete. Reflect on your thoughts, values and viewpoints on originality. Make note of any particular images or words that come to mind that represent innovation, freshness or uniqueness.

Some examples of artifacts that you could create include:

  • a painting or a drawing
  • a poster
  • a photograph
  • a written work, such as a story, a poem, a letter
  • an ad
  • a storyboard

However, your artifact isn’t limited to just images and words. Other examples of artifacts are:

  • a short video
  • a piece of music
  • a unique piece of code

You are welcome to build an artifact related to a work you have produced for your own studies at Sheridan. As long as your artifact is your own, original work, the possibilities are endless!

The Prize:
