It is time to kick off the annual Earth Month Poster Photo Contest!!! Every year we hold a contest that gives you, our students, the chance to be the stylist behind our earth month poster! This is a huge opportunity to have your work on posters, social media, and even the tickets for our Evening for Earth Event! Check out some of our winners from years past:
How to Enter:
This year we will be hosting the contest on Instagram!!! We have created a hashtag that will allow us to see all of your work collectively. Follow the steps below and get creating!
Step 1: Create your Image!
Either on a real model or a Dede head! Get creative, think of all the elements that you would want in your perfect shoot (model, lighting, location, wardrobe, and of course hair and makeup). Think outside the box. Literally, go outside, this is an EARTH Month poster after all!
Step 2: Post your Image on Instagram
With the appropriate Hashtags- make sure that your image gets seen by us and your peers. The top 5 images with the most likes will be entered into our judges panel for a final vote on the winning image.
-What are the Hashtags? #1TreeCan ( This is the theme of the shoot) and #AvedainstitutePortland ( Tag us so we cans we your work!)
-What is the goal? The goal of posting is to get the most likes (on the original image)! We will not count likes on shared imaged even though that's awesome if your work get shared. Be sure to tell you friends and family to vote by liking on the original image. The top 5 images with the most likes will be entered into the final round and a winner will be selected by a panel of judges.
