SAGE Opens Photo Contest for Travel Grant to Charleston 2015

August 26, 2014

Los Angeles, CA - SAGE today opens the 2014 Charleston Photo Competition, ending September 19. To participate, academic librarians in the US and Canada are invited to send a photo that responds to the question, “What is your favorite library tradition?” The first-place winner will receive a grant for full registration to the 2015 Charleston Conference as well as $500 for travel, and eleven runner-ups will each receive a $50 Amazon gift card.

"The SAGE Charleston Conference Calendar provides up-close and personal looks inside the heart of the university, the library. The Charleston Conference thanks SAGE for their support of the 2015 annual calendar," said Katina Strauch, Conference Founder.

Photo entries will be judged on three criteria – creativity, quality, and the ability to depict the library’s tradition. Each of the twelve winning photos will be featured in the 2015 Charleston Desk Calendar, distributed free to all Charleston attendees.

“This contest has allowed us all to get a unique, personal glimpse of what is happening in one of the oldest and most important parts of a university,” said Stephen Barr, President, SAGE International. “We are delighted to hold it for a third year, and to offer librarians the opportunity to take part in the prolific and dynamic conversations at the Charleston Conference.”

SAGE will celebrate 50 years of independent, academic publishing in 2015.

“In 2015 SAGE will be marking its fiftieth anniversary,” Barr continued. “We are committed to maintaining our independence for the long term, and to continuing to innovate in scholarly publishing to meet the needs of authors, readers, and libraries.”
