AGcelerate to host college wide photo contest

AGcelerate to host college wide photo contestThe University of Delaware’s AGcelerate Enrichment Program will host a photo contest for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff members in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR).

The theme of the contest is diversity and with CANR representing a diverse array of people and cultures, ecologies and educational fields, the college-wide contest challenges participants to capture the essence and diversity of the CANR community.

There are three categories to enter: people and cultural diversity, ecological and animal diversity, and diverse fields of study. All photography skill levels are acceptable and photos can be taken from smart phones or any type of camera.

To enter the contest, participants must submit photos to the AGcelerate website.

Eligible photos must have a minimum resolution of 1980 X 2340 and must be original, unedited work taken within the past year.

Voting will take place April 5-11 through an online ballot sent to all CANR students, faculty and staff members. The online voting form will display the photos from each category asking voters to nominate a first, second and third place photo from each category.

The first, second and third placer winners from each category will be announced following the voting. Selected photos will be enlarged and placed throughout Townsend Hall.
