Facebook Photo Challenge illuminates RIT Campus life, Photography

We challenged our RIT Facebook Fans yesterday to get out there and capture photos of the campus. What a response!

Here’s a snapshot of the first day: Fans submitted 86 photos from around the campus. The RIT Fan Page started yesterday with 6,301 fans and grew to 6,466 fans in less than 24 hours.

Here’s how the Photo Challenge works: We are looking for the best photography of clubs, sports and other activities on campus. Anything RIT. First, become a fan of RIT’s main Facebook page. Next, upload a photo to the wall with a caption beginning with “Photo Challenge” to become eligible for a $50 gift certificate from Barnes & Noble @ RIT. On Feb. 5, the photo with the most “likes” by 4 p.m. will be our first weekly winner. The contest will run for several weeks.

We’re keeping the contest simple. The photos can be from any time period. It just has to be on the RIT campus (or even our international sites in Kosovo, Croatia or Dubai)

Let’s show off the Day 1 leaders:
#1 photo so far is Marshall Watson’s “Greek Row.”

Chasing Marshall is Mark Marcello with his “Pink Boom Lift.”

Kudos to Tyler Kindron. Looks like he submitted more than a dozen photos, many of cool sunsets, like one with a plane flying over campus.

My personal favorite is “Reflection of Building 1” by Leslie L. Gregg.

We have a full week to go, so keep the photos coming and get your friends to vote by becoming fans of RIT.

    Love this challenge. It really shows how underrated the RIT campus is in terms of its beauty.
