Albion College, we want to see how active you are.
For the spring 2014 semester, we're sponsoring a photo contest featuring you, your friends, and what you do for fun on and off campus. It's a way to show the "Just One More" spirit at Albion.
Take a photo of you and your friends in the stands at an athletic game, singing along at the Big Show, or making faces during Day of Woden. We have some specific photo contests going on around big events this semester, but there's also an all-event category going on through Commencement. So snap away and submit!
Now for the nitty-gritty.
Categories, Deadlines and Prizes
Each big event on campus has a deadline and prize for the photo contest. There's also the Just One More Event photo contest, which can be from any event this semester (Day of Woden, Elkin Isaac, Anchor Splash, etc.).
- Spring Break: Congratulations to our winner Megan LaCavera, '16! View the winning photo.
- Greek Week: Congratulations to our winner, David Van Ittersum, '16! View the winning photo.
- Big Show: Who will it be? How close are you to the stage? Deadline is April 23, Prize is an Albion coffee mug
- Exams: Show yourself studying in the library, pulling an all-nighter, or your relaxation techniques during finals week. Deadline is May 7. Prize is a free beverage from Read Between the Grinds.
- Commencement: Best wishes, seniors! Show your cap and gown, your place in the faculty gauntlet, or your diploma. Deadline is May 12. Prize is an Albion alumni sweatshirt.
- Just One More Event: Anything and everything showing events at Albion College. Deadline is May 9. Prize is your choice of any piece of apparel at the Albion College Bookstore.

Thanks to some creative members of our incoming Class of 2017 (starting with Nick Viazanko's dog, Beau, at right), Albion is hosting a pet photo contest on Albion College's Facebook Page.
Take a photo of your pet wearing Albion College gear, and share it with us. We'll collect the photos into one Facebook photo gallery, and the photo with the highest number of "Likes" gets featured as our page profile photo for one week!
Submit your photos from July 26-31, 2013, to enter into the contest. Judging (or "Liking") will take place from August 1-4.
- Take a photo of your pet (any animal) wearing Albion College-related gear. Hats, shirts, glasses - as long as it's clearly Albion gear (and not just purple and gold), it counts.
- Post your photo to Albion College's Facebook page wall with your pet's name and a caption.
- Not on Facebook? You can also share a photo via Twitter or Instagram, using the hastag #britonpets, or email the photo to
- Submit your photos from July 26 to July 31, 2013. All photos must be submitted by midnight July 31. We will then post all the photos in a Facebook photo gallery for "Liking." Voting will take place from August 1 until midnight August 4, 2013.
- The photo receiving the most "Likes" in our Facebook photo gallery will be the winner. Send your friends, family, and other pets to vote in the official photo gallery through August 4.
