The UWA Friends of the Grounds group (RL) have just produced their 2013 Calendar. This is a special issue to celebrate the University's centenary, and images from past photographic competitions (one of which was held in 2011) including images from the UWA Archives have been used for it.

The 2011 competition led to 2 photos from Second Life, by Jay Jay Jegathesan/Zifanwe and Silene Christen of the Spanish Balears Islands making it into the 2012 calendar

The photographers were told at the time, that their submissions would be also considered for the 2013 calendar as well, as the photographic competition is held ever 2 years.

We are happy to announce that the photo above by Germany's Harter Fall (Bastian Gerlach) has been selected by the UWA Friends of the Grounds selection panel for inclusion in the special edition 2013 Centenary Calendar.

On hearing the news, Harter commented, "Thank you so much for including my photo in the 2013 UWA calendar, this is a great honour. I wish the UWA faculties, students and alumni happy centenary celebrations and good luck for the next 100 years... 'Gaudeamus igitur'."

A copy of this calendar will be part of the prize package for the winners for the current UWA Centenary 3D Art Challenge as well as MachinimUWA V: Seek Wisdom. This includes the winners of the Audience Participation Events
