As we approach a new academic year, The Sphinx is opening up the opportunity to design our new social media header to contributors, readers and local creatives.

We’re looking for a fresh, new image which captures a recognisable aspect of student life in Liverpool. This might be a photograph of an iconic building or place, an illustration or other design – it may include The Sphinx logo, or it may not.

It just needs to showcase our great student city at its best.

To enter, simply send your image to by Friday, 18th September with the subject: ‘Competition’.

Since The Sphinx is a newspaper run by student volunteers, we are unable to pay entrants for their work. However, we hope this will be a good opportunity for young creatives to display their design to the world; the winning photo will be shared with our thousands of readers and followers with full links and credits.


*Images must be at least 399 x 150 pixels and sent in a .jpg format. The ideal image will be around 851 x 315 pixels tall and less than 100 kilobytes in size.
