Rieke Photo Contest 2022
You’re invited to participate in a Rieke Photo Contest! We’re looking for photos representing your time at PLU in the College of Natural Sciences. Subject matter is up to you, but the photo should be of a PLU science-related experience (including experiences off-campus, like Study Away).
There are 5 categories in which you can enter photos: Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Physics, and general Natural Sciences. (General Natural Sciences is a category that includes all programs in the College of Natural Sciences: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, Geosciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology.) The PLU community (students, faculty, staff, alums) will select the winners, and the top three photos in each category will be framed and displayed in the glass cases across from Enrieké the Slug in the Rieke Science Center hallway.
Photo contest winners will be announced during Rieke Weekie, our fall celebration of all things science in Rieke. Find out this year’s schedule of activities here.
some photos from past winners
- You don’t have to be a Natural Sciences major to enter, but you must be an enrolled PLU student who has taken (or is currently taking) a Natural Sciences class (Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, Geosciences, Mathematics, Physics, or Psychology).
- Each student may only enter twice.
- Each photo may only be entered in one category.
- Any student can submit a photo to any discipline. (For example: A Computer Science student can submit a photo in the Chemistry category.)
- Photos will be printed 19.25″ x 27.25″, so please submit the largest possible file size. In general, 2600 x 1920 pixels is a good dimension, and if you’re using a camera or phone camera with 9+ megapixels, you should be fine.
- Photos can be color or black & white.
- Submissions are accepted September 12th – October 24th
- Voting runs October 25th – November 5th
- Winners are announced on November 18th, during the final day of Rieke Weekie
