This competition runs as part of UMSU. UMSU, as well as the Creative Arts and Media Offices, are located on the Wurundjeri land of the Kulin Nations. We pay our respects to Elders, past and present, and extend that respect to the First Nations students in this community. The land we are on and the lands we are working from were stolen and sovereignty was never ceded.
