Spring Break Photo Contest

The Lobo Life is excited to announce our third photo contest! Here are the details on how to enter, what you can win and how the winners will be chosen!

How to Enter:

The contest opens Friday, March 9th  and is being held exclusively through our Instagram page (@TheLoboLife). From kick-off to Friday, March 23rd, any photograph posted with the hashtag #thelobolife is entered into the competition, granted they follow the rules below.

After the competition is closed on the 23rd at noon, the judges will choose their top 9 photographs. The judges include Lobo Life founder Josh Lane, previous contest winner Hyunju Blemel, UNM Photography Department Professor (TBD), and University Social Media Coordinator Jordan Scott.

On Friday, March 23rd at 5PM, The Lobo Life will post all 9 of the judges’ top picks on our Instagram at the same time, in no particular order. That opens the voting for the winning pictures. Everyone is encouraged to “vote” for their favorite photograph by liking it. You may vote for any or all of the images.

Whichever photos have the most “likes” by Monday, March 26th at noon will be the winners— which means if your photo is chosen in the top 9, you should tell everyone you know to like your photos so you have the best chance of winning prizes!

To be considered photos must be:

  • You must be following:@thelobolife, @visittaos, @hotellunamystica and @littlebearcoffeeco
  • Photos must be posted on Instagram between 3/9 and 3/23
  • Photos must tag #thelobolife in the photo’s caption
  • Profiles must be public so we can view the photo
  • You must be a UNM student
  • Photos can be from around the state, the country, and around the world

What we are are looking for:

We want to see where you’re spending your Spring Break. From local hangouts to international adventures, this photo contest is open to all Lobos, wherever their Lobo Life has taken them. The judges are looking for images that tell a story, inspire and excite; photos that showcase the very best of being a Lobo. From studying abroad in far off lands and foreign cultures to discovering the Wild West of New Mexico’s wilderness, show us what The Lobo Life means to you. Photos can come from smartphones, digital cameras, DSLR’s, polaroids, film cameras, or even disposable cameras! We love to see all the different ways Lobo’s capture their experiences and will aim to select a wide variety of images, stories, and perspectives in the top 9 photos.
