As Rice marks its Centennial in 2012, the Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies will celebrate the unique photographic opportunities that the campus provides – from the traditional and iconic to the unexpected and extraordinary.
The photography contest seeks submissions that capture the spirit of Rice University, as viewed from the photographers’ individual perspectives. How do you see Rice? To which building or nook, garden or pathway, archway or cloister have you always been drawn? What corners of campus best represent the Rice that you admire? We welcome your best photos of campus, taken outdoors as can be seen by the public.
Historic photos may be submitted also, as long as you were the photographer.
Having offered photography classes to the public for more than 30 years, the Glasscock School celebrates the photographic arts and welcomes submissions from the entire community – from Rice students to the general public. Entrants must be at least 18 years of age.
Prizes: 1st Prize: $1,000; the photo will also be featured in the fall 2012 Glasscock School of Continuing Studies course catalog 2nd Prize: $500 3rd Prize: $250 Glasscock Prize: $250; this prize is for a participant who has taken a photography class through the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies since January 2000. If this photo also wins 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize, the entrant will receive both prizes. See available photography classes > Honorable Mentions: As determined by judges
