Library Shelfie competition 2019

2018 Shelfie entry: @mario_wib

Show us your best Library Shelfie to go in the draw to win a $300 prepaid Visa card.

What the heck is a Library Shelfie? A Library Shelfie is simply a selfie taken in one of our Griffith University libraries.

We want you to get creative and take a shelfie in your favourite library study nook, reading a book, studying, hanging with your mates, or having fun in the library when you’re meant to be studying *coughs*. You might even like to impress us with a bookface shelfie.

Why are we doing this? Well, it’s a little bit silly, a whole lotta fun and we know how much you love the chance to win some sweet cash.
