CUNY PHOTO CHALLENGE FOR 2017-2018
USE YOUR CAMERA TO CAPTURE A COMPELLING MOMENT AT CUNY FOR A CHANCE TO WIN AN IPAD!
THIS COMPETITION IS OPEN ONLY TO UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE STUDENTS WHO ARE CURRENTLY ENROLLED AT THE CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK.
Use your camera to capture a compelling moment at CUNY and win an iPad! Enter our monthly student photo competition, generally by the 25th of every month — now through May. If CUNY’s judges pick you as the monthly winner, you and your photo will be featured during the following month on the cuny.edu homepage billboard, each month contest winners page,Instagram, Twitter and CUNY Facebook, which also will show two runners-up. In June, all CUNY students will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite monthly winner to decide which is the best student photo of the year. The winner will receive an iPad.
What judges look for: Our panel of professional photographers, editors and graphic artists looks for images that say something about our students, faculty, staff, a CUNY college or a campus activity. The judges favor images that tell stories, including human interest. They reserve the right to not choose a winner in a month that does not have strong images. Please view the full official rules page for more specific details.
Hint: We suggest that contestants look at past monthly winners to get a sense of what CUNY judges have liked — but please do something original! Use the links available on the left side of this page. See below for the previous iPad winners.
