Contest Rules and Information
The 2017 CO-OP photo contest is open to all CO-OP students currently registered at the University of Ottawa.
- Maximum total submission of five photographs entry per student.
- Photos, along with a completed consent form, must be submitted by October 10, 2017
- We are looking for original photos that highlight and define your CO-OP experience (see category details below).
Photographs taken for this contest must be related to your work term.
You may submit photographs of you alone, of you with your supervisor or of you and your co-workers. The photos should be of you on the job during the work term (e.g., at your desk, in the lab, in the shop, out in the field or in other work-related areas). You may submit photos in this category that were taken by you (i.e. you set the camera on self-timer), or by a colleague, if you have received their permission to submit it. Be original!
*If a photograph was taken by a professional photographer (e.g., a photographer hired to take official company photos), it cannot be submitted for this contest.
