Enter A CWRU for All Seasons photo contest

Seasons come and go—but photos last a lifetime.

Last year’s “CWRU Photo of the Year” was a huge hit, so this year’s “A CWRU for All Seasons” photo contest is your chance to submit your favorite shots from around Case Western Reserve University during all four seasons.

All photo submissions that meet sizing requirements will be added to a Facebook photo album on Monday, Dec. 16, where followers can vote for their favorite photos until Friday, Dec. 20.

There will be four grand-prize winners, one in each category: Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. The photo with the most votes in each category will win a CWRU gift basket. The top 12 photos (top three from each category) will be transformed into computer desktop backgrounds that will be shared with the CWRU community in early January.

Here are the rules:

  1. Submissions must be made by a current student, alumnus or employee of Case Western Reserve University.
  2. Photos must be taken on Case Western Reserve’s campus.
  3. Photos must be high-res (at least 1920 pixels wide x 1080 pixels high OR 8 in wide x 4.5 tall, with a 300 dpi resolution).
  4. Participants can submit up to 10 photo entries, in as many categories as they want; however, participants can only win one grand prize from one of the four categories.
  5. All photo submissions will be added to Case Western Reserve’s Facebook page, where followers will vote to select winners.
  6. Participants can only win a grand prize in one of the four categories. For instance, if a participant has two photos with the most votes in both the Fall (300 votes) and Summer (250 votes) categories, the photo with the highest number of votes will win that category (i.e. Fall photo). The winner of the Summer category, in this instance, would then go to the runner-up who has the second-highest number of votes.
  7. The top four winners who receive the most votes in each category will receive CWRU gift baskets.
  8. The top 12 photos (three from each category) will be transformed into desktop backgrounds for free download by the CWRU community.
  9. All photos submitted via this contest will become the property of Case Western Reserve University, granting the university to use these images within marketing materials, on social media, etc.
  10. Photo content must be appropriate. University Marketing and Communications reserves the right to deny photos for any reason, including, but not limited to: inappropriate content, sizing issues, non-CWRU affiliations, etc.

To enter the “A CWRU for All Seasons” photo contest, submit your photos using the submission form. Grand prize winners will be notified after the New Year via email or phone.
