May Newsletter for College Students

By Explore Editor

Did you know that May is National Photography Month? And with spring in full bloom, what better time to get out and start snapping some photos of your campus? That’s why we've decided to host a photo contest for college students this month. All you have to do is grab a camera (or your smartphone), take some photos around campus, upload them to your school's Unigo page, and you'll be automatically entered to win a $20 gift card to Starbucks. We'll award gift cards for our ten favorite shots, and one to the student who uploads the most photos.

Q: How does it work?
A: Take a photo of your campus and upload it to your school's page on Unigo by clicking “Upload College Photos” under My Settings in your profile.

Q: How many photos can I submit?
A: As many as you want! At Unigo, we celebrate quality and quantity. We’re giving away a $20 Starbucks gift card to the student who uploads the most photos and $20 Starbucks gift cards for our ten favorite photos.

Q: When does the contest begin and end?
A: The contest officially begins today (May 1) and ends on May 22. That gives you three weeks to find the perfect light for your winning photo.

Q: How will the winners be announced?
A: The winners will be announced in next month’s newsletter, which will be arriving in your inboxes during the first week of June. The winning photographs will be on display, as well as the name of the contest winners. The winners must claim their prize by emailing their address to after the announcement. So make sure to check and see if you won.

Q: What kinds of photos are you looking for?
A: We want quality photos that show off your campus. The subject matter can be anything that somebody interested in your school would want to see - a beautiful academic building, students hanging out in the quad, your dorm, the dining hall, or your favorite hangout.

Q: What kinds of photos are you not looking for?
A: Anything your mother wouldn't approve of.

For an idea of what kinds of photos students have uploaded in the past, just take a look at your school’s Unigo page. And if you have any questions, feel free to drop us a line at
