Thank you to everyone who sent in all of their wonderful submissions.  Selection was no easy task. Watch the W&M website and myWM for some of our judges' favorites ... can you say honorable mention?


What's this all about?

We invite you as students, their families, alumni, or faculty and staff to submit your best Halloween or fall photos. We'll put them up together on the W&M Flickr page for sharing and our panel of judges will select the winners in three categories - Students, Alumni and Other.  We'll also open the judging up to the public ... you can vote on your favorite for the coveted People's Choice Award!

What happens if I win?

We'll feature your photo on the W&M home page and assure you bragging rights for years to come! Winning photos will rotate on the W&M home page, with your name and class year in the tagline, for the days leading up to Halloween.  Note: please refer to the suggested photo size formating below.

How do I vote for my favorite?

Submitted photos can be viewed on the W&M Flickr photostream. Just place your vote online using the photo's entry number and see if your favorite wins the People's Choice Award! Winners will be announced and featured on the W&M home page in the days leading up to Halloween. People's Choice voting deadline is  Friday October 23rd at midnight!

How do I submit my photo?

Submitting pictures is easy, but first, you should know:

  1. You may only submit your own work.  Do not submit someone else's photographs!
  2. We'll need your name, graduating class (if applicable), a brief description and a full size photo (images with a horizontal format will work best on the W&M homepage).
  3. By submitting a photograph for consideration, you're agreeing to this Creative Commons license.
  4. Submissions are only moderated to maintain the (tasteful) spirit of the contest - we'll let you know if and why we can't accept your submission.
  5. Your photo will appear on W&M's Flickr page, and could appear on the W&M website, myWM or a campus publication.
  6. Submission deadline is Thursday October 22nd at noon!

Note: winning photos will be formatted to fit the W&M home page design and will have your first name and class year displayed (if applicable).
