A couple of months ago, we showed you some examples of how we see the library just before we open the doors. With no one around, it’s open, quiet, and still. Now, we’re curious to learn how you see the library which is why the Library Outreach Committee is pleased to announce the Summer 2011 Library Photo Contest!
What do you see? The banality of endless shelves? Academic fervor in our social areas? A whole lot of concrete? Whatever you see, capture it and share it with us by July 31, 2011. Contest winners will receive Amazon gift cards and have their photographs displayed at the Library.
Here are the details:
What is it?
The Library Photo Contest is an opportunity for you to share your perspective of the library through one image.
Who May Enter?
The contest is limited to current UTC students (registered for Summer or Fall 2011 semesters), staff, and faculty.
What to Enter?
We’re looking for photographs that highlight the library or library services. Take a photo of the library interior or exterior, objects within the library, people using the library … really, as long as it is related to the UTC library, it counts! Each contestant may submit up to three images, but is ultimately eligible for just one of the prizes.
How to Enter?
Email your photos as attachments of major image file types (JPEG, TIFF, PNG, etc.) to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also deliver files in person to Bo Baker (room 110) or Lane Wilkinson (room 107).
UTC affiliation and/or standing (e.g. Junior Education major; Physics faculty, etc.)
Your UTC email address
A title for your work
All entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, July 31, 2011.
Contest winners will be announced on August 3, 2011 and winners will be notified by email shortly thereafter. Winners may pick up their prize at the library or request that it be mailed.
Judging and Prizes
Library faculty and staff members will serve as contest judges. Photos will be judged on originality, quality, and how well they highlight some aspect of Lupton Library. Contest judges will choose a Grand Prize winner and a Runner-Up. The Grand Prize winner will receive a $50 Amazon gift card and the Runner-Up will receive a $25 Amazon gift card. The Grand Prize photo will be displayed in the Library and both winning photos will be displayed on Library websites.
