Photo Contest! -- CLOSED

Votes are in! Julia and Andy Kupas, you win the webcam and photo feature on www.dallas.edu/Online! Congrats! Mike, you win the mini mouse! Kelli, you win the earbuds! Winners, please email Melody at mtrowell@dallas.edu with your address. Thanks to everyone who submitted photos. What fun! Can't wait for our next giveaway! Spread the DCC Online word to your fellow classmates and instructors!
Dallas Christian College's website recently got a facelift, featuring lots of new tools and a new layout. The DCC Online section, however, still needs a new photo! That's where YOU come in!

We want YOU featured on the new Dallas Christian College website! And what better way to do this than to have you submit your own photos? So, we're having our very first online contest! Entering is easy, so start snapping those pics! (Contest is open to students and instructors.)

Contest Rules:
  1. Take a photo of you, your friends, and/or your students studying/working on a computer. (This is an amateur contest, so you don't have to have more camera than what is probably on your phone.)
  2. “Like” our Facebook page
  3. Upload your pic to our Facebook page (just post on our wall) by December 5th at 11:59 p.m. CST (Make sure to give your pic a title!)
  4. We'll choose the top 3 photos and let the DCC Online Facebook community vote for their favorite!

Tips for taking your photo:
  • Make sure the lighting is good (sunlight works best) and minimize shadows.
  • Keep the photo simple and uncluttered.
  • Creativity is a plus! Show us your style!
  • Photoshop (or other photo-editing software) to enhance the quality or creativity of the picture is allowed. 


1st prize--Logitech C600 webcam and photo featured on http://www.dallas.edu/Online
2nd prize--Mini optical travel mouse with retractable cable
3rd prize--In-ear earbuds with case

*The winner will be announced on December 6th via Facebook, Twitter, blog, and Moodle. Multiple entries will be accepted. By submitting your photo, you are giving DCC permission to use it in electronic and print publications.
