Elizabethtown’s First Photo Challenge: Instagram Captures the 30 First Days of the Semester

We’re kicking off the 2012-2013 academic year by inviting you to take a photo each day and share with friends and family—and the world!—via Instagram (and optionally from Instagram, also post to FB and Twitter, and even foursquare) using the hashtags #etowncollege #photoaday.

If you’ve used Instagram in the past, you may have seen these photo challenges — and we’re joining in on the fun with E-town specific photos challenges that will allow you to explore campus and reflect on what makes you, you!

The graphic below gives the 30 photo challenges for each day in this 30-day period, Remember, Day 1 is Aug. 27 and Day 30 is Sept. 25. Be sure to post the Day # in your photo! (Also, you may download and print a copy here.)

Eight winners will be drawn at random from those who have posted 10 or more photos during the challenge–winners will receive either a very fitting photo-oriented prize, or some sweets and eats! Note that to be entered to win, you must use the hashtags to be ‘found’. While the contest is geared toward students, anyone can play along!

Snap away and have fun!
