University photography contest is open for entries

The third annual Wake Forest Photography Contest is open for submissions from faculty, staff and students at Wake Forest and at UNC School of the Arts­­.  The contest began as a celebration of the beauty of Wake’s campus in the fall and has evolved into a general photography contest that allows any subject.

The contest, which had more than 300 submissions last year, is run by The Media, a student-led organization.

Entrants should email their photos to or upload photos to the official website by the submission deadline of Oct. 31.

In early November, a panel of judges will select the top photos that demonstrate exceptional skill, creativity and artistic ability.

The first-place winner will receive a prize worth $200 with a signed thank-you card from Provost Rogan Kersh.  The winning entry will be printed on a vinyl banner which will hang on Reynolda Hall overlooking Hearn Plaza. The second-place winner will receive a prize worth $150, the third-place winner will receive a prize worth $75, and all other finalists will receive prizes worth $15.
