The Library Mind Space wants to buy your photo!!

The Newtown campus library is creating a new "Mind Space" area with computers and assistance for students working on multimedia projects.  They are looking for a large digital photo to fill some of their wall space.  We are seeking digital entries from photo students.  The winning piece will be printed on the Epson 9880 printer and purchased by the college (yes, you will be paid!!) The deadline for entries is May 1.  More information will be posted soon in the Hicks digital lab and darkroom space - in the meantime start shooting.
