SAGE Publishing Charleston Photo Contest

Send us a Photo to Enter to Win a Trip to the 2019 Charleston Conference

Show us how your library connects with students and faculty beyond library walls!

Librarians are connecting with students and faculty in new and different ways, especially beyond library walls—maybe through a library-sponsored yoga class on the lawn during finals, an online-only career fair, or a debate hosted by the library Twitter account. Show us how you connect with students and faculty beyond your brick-and-mortar walls for your chance to win a trip to the 2019 Charleston Conference.

Tag us on Instagram (@sage_publishing) or Twitter (@SAGE_News) in a picture that shows what your library is doing outside of the library, using #SAGExCharleston2019Contest. (Don’t have either of those platforms or your account is set to private? No worries! Send an email to [email protected].) In your caption, share a description of the image and the name of your institution.

The contest is open to academic librarians from U.S. and Canada from now through September 9th, 11:59 p.m. PST.


  • 1 first-place winner will receive a voucher for registration at the 2019 Charleston Conference as well as $500 for travel-related expenses
  • 5 second-place winners will each receive a $50 Amazon gift card
  • All 6 winners will have their entry photographs featured in the 2019 Charleston Conference’s photo-desk calendar (for calendar year 2020) which will be given to all conference attendees

See the Terms and Conditions below for more information.


The winners will be chosen based on the following three criteria:

  1. Ability to depict efforts to connect with patrons outside the library
  2. Creativity
  3. Quality of the photo entry
