Ignatian Heritage Month Photography Contest, November 1–8, 2013
Lights, camera…photo! Loyola University Chicago is pleased to re-launch the Ignatian Heritage Month photography contest November 1–8, 2013, during the first week of Ignatian Heritage Month. This contest will serve as a kick-off to the month, and will invite the entire Loyola community to submit original photos taken within the selected subject matter during the week.
Loyola's Ignatian Heritage Month celebration highlights the living legacy of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus and patron of Loyola University Chicago. In honor of his legacy and in celebration of the month, winning photos will be chosen in the following theme categories:
- Magis (the philosophy of doing more for others)
- A faith that does justice
- Finding God in all things
The finalists will be chosen by a panel of Loyola faculty, staff, and students. The finalists’ photos will be posted to Loyola Chicago’s official Facebook page (Facebook.com/LoyolaChicago) and the Loyola community will vote by “liking” the photos on Facebook. A combination of the Facebook “likes” and panelist votes will determine the winners in each category and an overall winner.
The overall winning photo will be featured on the LUC.edu homepage, Loyola’s official Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, as well as on Inside Loyola and Rambler Buzz. The top photographers in each category will win a $50 Visa gift card and the overall winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card.
All photos must be taken and submitted within the week of November 1–8, 2013. You can submit your photo, and a brief caption noting how the photo captures one of the Ignatian themes above, in one of the following ways:
- E-mail your photo and caption to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Post your photo on Twitter or Instagram and include the #IHMLoyolaChicago hashtag.
- Post your photo on the wall of the Mission and Identity Facebook page (Facebook.com/LUCMissionandIdentity).
This contest is sponsored by University Marketing and Communication, School of Communication, Department of Fine and Performing Arts, and Mission and Identity. For questions, e-mail email@example.com.
