What does “student experience” mean to you?
Tabbitha Price is the Corporate Communications and Public Relations student who is organizing the event as part of her internship with Fanshawe College. “It's a photo/video contest for students to share their experiences at the College,” she explained.
This contest offers students the chance to get creative by asking them what the term “student experience” means to them. This could range from recreation to community involvement to student affairs to internships to something completely different, Price said.
There are three categories to enter: video, professional students photography (for students in any photography or graphic design course) and student photography. Entries are being accepted until midnight on March 29. On April 1, the entries will be posted on the Fanshawe Student Union website for a week of voting. The top five entries in each category will be judged; the first-place winner in each category will receive $1,000, second place will receive $250 and third place will receive $100. There is also a $250 prize to be awarded to one student who votes on the entries.
“Through the iExperience contest, we hope students find a unique and personal way of showing off the campus they love,” said Fanshawe Student Union President Zack Dodge. “Personally, as a multimedia graduate, I like the fact that students get to show off their skills and potentially create a great portfolio piece at the same time.”
