In conjunction with Day of Photo, the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences is running its eighth annual RIT Photo Prize Instagram competition to discover, support and highlight the next generation of image makers!
Entry and Eligibility
Entry into the contest is simple: Tag your 10 best Instagram posts with #RITphotoprize2021. That’s it! Our faculty judges will follow the tagged submissions and winners will be announced during the Day of Photo event on Oct. 22. Attendance is not required to be a winner.
Participants must currently be enrolled in seventh through 12th grades or community college, and be in a photography class. Final awarding of prizes will require proof of student status. Submissions will close at 11:59 p.m. (EST) Friday, Oct. 15.
Five award winners will be determined by our team of five faculty judges: four Images of Distinction and the top prize, Image of Excellence. Prizes for 2021 are to be announced. Previous winners have received subscriptions to Adobe Creative Cloud, cameras, photography equipment and more.
