The Raider Photography Contest has officially kicked off for its second iteration. Although the contest is run by Raider Student Media, the contest is open to all students of the University of Mount Union. The winner of this contest will receive two Cleveland Monsters tickets and a $5.00 B&B Café gift card. To participate in the contest, you can send your best original photos to Brendan DeVenney (email@example.com). But if you wish to participate, you better hurry because the submission deadline is February 24. To vote in the poll for your favorite picture, follow @rsm_umu on Twitter.
This iteration of the Raider Photography Contest has seen some changes since its first incarnation last year. Although the contest still utilizes social media, the winners were determined via Instagram likes before. Unfortunately, this method proved ineffective, as Instagram removed likes not long after the start of the contest. As a result, all entrants were rewarded the main prize. At the time, Raider Student Media was giving out Canton Charge tickets.
The primary objective for the Raider Photography Contest is to help raise awareness of Raider Student Media and its social media platform. It’s also RSM’s goal to increase student involvement with the organization across campus. As a result, the Raider Photography Contest is expected to continue. If you don’t win this month, don’t worry. You can expect a new contest to begin every month.
