Wanted: Diversity-themed photos for student contest

Loyola press release - February 14, 2013

What does diversity mean to Loyola’s student body? How is it important? What does it look like? Can it be captured in a photograph? Now students will have the opportunity to tell their story and share their perspective of diversity on campus by participating in the Face(s) of Loyola Diversity Photo Contest, sponsored by the University Diversity Committee at Loyola University New Orleans.

All entries will be displayed on the TV screens in the Loyola One room in the Danna Student Center April 1-5. Winners will be announced the following week, April 8-12, at an event featuring university photographer Harold Baquet, keynote speaker on diversity and photography. A committee of faculty and students will select the winners. First place prize is $150; second - $75; third - $50.

Guidelines for the contest include:

  • Photo subjects should represent the photographer’s perspective of what diversity at Loyola means.
  • All photo entries should be digital and original works.
  • Entries must include student’s name, e-mail address, phone number, date photo was taken and a brief description. Titles are optional.
  • Entries must be submitted by midnight March 8, 2013, to Karen Reichard, Ph.D., director of the Women’s Resource Center.
