Call for Entries for Life in a Day at CEU: #CEUcelebrates Photo Contest

December 14, 2015

CEU’s Communications Office and Student Recruitment Office, in cooperation with the Center for Arts and Culture and CEU Weekly, will be hosting a photo contest each season this academic year, with great prizes for the best entries.

The theme for the winter is #CEUcelebrates. Enter 1-5 photos encapsulating the festive spirit, with a lot of brilliant lights and vibrant colors to brighten up those gloomy winter days ahead. Show us what you celebrate, how you celebrate and who you celebrate with. Share your CEU story.

Who can participate
The contest is open to current students, faculty and staff. Multiple entries are allowed.

How to participate
Each entrant should submit 1-5 images by 23:59 on February 29, 2016. Post your pictures to the contest event page on Facebook or share it on Instagram with the hashtag #CEUcelebrates. 
Make sure your post/account is set to public on Facebook/Instagram, otherwise we won’t see your entry. 
Provide captions to tell us a little more about each image and remember to include your name and your academic program.
Photos may be taken with your smart phone or a camera, may be horizontal or vertical, black and white or in color – be creative! Photo captions should not exceed 150 words each.

How the winners will be selected
Entries will be judged by a panel consisting of current CEU students and staff. Photos and captions will be judged based on the interpretation of the theme as well as on the basis of artistic merit. The entry which gets the most likes on Facebook/Instagram before the final contest deadline of June 1, 2016 will also receive a prize.

What you can win
Winners will receive gift vouchers and CEU branded items. A selection of the best entries will be exhibited at CEU.
