Download this official photographer badge, which must be worn or carried on campus. The PDF with the badge contains a map of the campus as well as helpful information.
If you submit a photograph, it must belong to you. The original photograph may be taken during the contest, or may have been taken prior to the contest, but it must be yours! Read the rules to learn more.
Download the photo release here. Photography that personally identifies individuals or small groups requires a photo release form. Examples include but are not limited to portraits, close-ups of individuals, and small groups with faces clearly defined. Even if you’re submitting in the amateur category, take a tip from the pros and get a signed release of the people you’re photographing.
All photographs must be submitted digitally through ShineAtUST.com in a JPEG or .jpg format, 5 MB or smaller and at least 300 dpi. While the submitted copies must be digital, the original images may be scanned negatives, prints or slides.
