Are you a Douglas College student who likes to take photos? Could you use some help paying for school? If so, then you might want to check this out.

Here at Douglas we’re looking for some new cover photos for our Facebook page and we want them from you, our students.

To add some fun to the process, we're having a photo competition. The prizes are a $500 tuition-fee credit for first place, a $300 credit for second and a $200 credit for third.

Here’s how the contest works:

1. Take photos in or around the college campuses then email them to or tweet them to @douglascollege.

2. We will post the photos on our Facebook page in a special album. The top five with the most likes, comments and shares will be placed into a playoff vote in early November to determine the top three.

3. In early December, we will create a new album featuring those top-three photos. A final round of “voting” using the same system will determine the prize winners. First place will also be the cover in December.

To enter the contest, you must have a valid Douglas College student ID. Submit as many photos as you like. One prize per student. The deadline for submissions is Monday, Sept. 30.

We look forward to seeing what our talented student-shutterbugs come up with, so get your photos in.
