BABSOC x BABS Photo Competition

Bringing out the artist talent of BABS, BABSOC in collaboration with the school of BABS launched a new and exciting photo competition amongst all students, staff and researchers. With our new E26 biosciences building currently empty with endless walls of white, this event opened up the opportunity to feature exceptional artwork amongst the people of BABS whilst being able to proudly decorate our building with the aesthetics of science.

This event also marked the beginning of our new social media channel, Instagram @babsoc.unsw, which was used to share every submission made on Facebook in hopes to "get with the trends" of the young'ins. With the closure of the photo submission, we celebrated the winners and commemorated the event...
