We’re doing things a little differently this year! All winners will be People’s Choice. All employees of the college will be eligible to vote for their favorite photo in each category, and a People’s Choice Award in each category will be named.

Prizes and Awards

There will be a winner for each category. To allow for wider recognition, employees may win in only one category.

Prize winners will each receive a “Customizable Photo Variety Package”, valued at $75 each, sponsored by Post & Print. Optional items include postcards, note cards, and an assortment of prints of your winning photo.
