Contests

How do you do summer at Oakland University? This time of year, we tend to swap our usual study spot for a hammock in the shade. We use our break between classes to wet our feet at the fountains. And find an excuse to take our OU sunnies and water bottles wherever we go. 

OU will be posting your submissions throughout the summer. 

How to submit: 

Email social@oakland.edu with the following:

  • 3 photos that show your take on the 2017 summer semester 
  • 1 short caption for each photo (we may edit them)
  • Full name, major, class standing
  • Instagram and Twitter handles (so we can give you credit)

Win*:

Winners will be selected by OU's social media team based on photo quality, composition, originality, and captions. 

If your photos are featured, you will receive OU swag pack that can be picked up from the social media office in Anibal house.

*Financial Aid implications may apply. You are required to claim prize values, which may impact your Financial Aid award. Consult with a Student Financial Services adviser for more information.


Full Rules:

  • Photo must be taken in spring/summer 2017.
  • Must be a currently enrolled Oakland University student.
  • You must own the copyrights to the image submissions (the photo was taken by you and is not for any other purpose or publication). 
  • OU’s social media team reserves the right to exclude any images that are inappropriate, off topic, do not meet the specifications above, or are low resolution.
  • People in the photos must be aware, and consent to, having their image submitted for publication.  
  • Images submitted for social media contests may be used in future publications with or without photo credit, depending on the use.
