Summer Snapshots themed Photo Competition

Calling all photographers! This will be the beginning of a year of competitions! The theme for this one The Interpreter’s new slogan: a bridge between cultures. Email us your summer snapshots with a note of the title, location and a caption of up to 50 words describing why you feel your photos fit with the theme. And that’s it! Sit back, relax, and get liking.

A maximum of two entries per person. All submissions must be emailed to before 4pm on Monday of Week 4 (3 October 2016).

All the submissions we receive will be uploaded to our Facebook page, where they will remain active for one week. Photos will be judged by the amount of likes they receive on Facebook. Judging will close on Sunday 9 October at midday, with the winners being notified by email and in Sunday evening’s publication of the magazine at 6pm. The photos will then be uploaded to the photo Gallery section of The Interpreter website.


Creative Writing Competition

Ever fancied yourself as the next Shakespeare, or have you read the new Harry Potter book and felt you could do better? Then this is the competition for you! It will run later on in the first semester. More details to come, but get your creative thinking caps on!


Travel Writing Competition

The committee plans to run this competition after the return from Christmas break. When faced with a month long of holidays, there’s only one way to spend it: travel! We’re really looking forward to hearing about all the adventurous activities and itineraries you have planned. More details to come.


Spring Break Photo Competition

The Interpreter’s favourite photo competition returns! Got big plans for Spring break? Perhaps you’re touring Scotland, Europe, or Australia. Whatever you’re planning to do, get snapping; The Interpreter wants to know! More details to come.


Year Abroad Reflections Competition

Will you be on a year abroad in 2016-17? Excited? Nervous? Happy to get away from St Andrews? Don’t forget about The Interpreter, though, because we’ve got just the competition for you! Throughout your year you’ll experience and learn some wonderful things. There’ll be ups and downs, but these will only make you stronger. You’ll come back a changed person… But seriously, romantic clichés aside, we ask you to write for us at the end of your year reflecting back upon the whirlwind that’s just happened. Any important happy or sad memories? What touched/surprised/scared you? What have you learnt from your experience? What advice would you give to fellow students about to begin their years abroad? More details to come.


Year Long Writing Competition

Here at The Interpreter, we care about our writers and make sure that the dedicated ones don’t go unrewarded. This year we’re launching, for the first time ever, a year-long competition for you. All of our writers will be entered into this competition, which totals the amount of views on all of your articles collectively. Have lots of people read your articles? Well then you just might win! Write more articles for a greater chance of a prize! More details to come.
