Hot Shot Media is excited to announce the Top 30 Photo Finalists in the second Snapshot Scholar Photo Contest. The Finalist photos can be viewed at http://facebook.com/snapshotscholar and http://www.snapshotscholar.com/leaderboards/finalists.
Between September 30 and November 18, contestants submitted their best photos to Snapshot Scholar, a social photography photo contest. Students 18 years or older studying at any qualifying California educational institution could enter to win financial assistance from Snapshot Scholar 2. Non-students were also welcome to participate.
Students simply submit their photos to the Snapshot Scholar Web site to win an award for the department, club or Greek organization of their choice. The combined award for students is up to $10,000 for themselves, their school's department, and club or Greek organization. For non-students the prize is $1,000 for themselves.
A five-member panel will judge Snapshot Scholar. The judges are Tabitha Soren, Jesse Freidin, Brett Reed, Ken Light, and Keri Fullwood.
About Snapshot Scholar
The seven-week contest on Snapshot Scholar allows contestants to submit their best photos and vote on others’ photos. Each week, the photos with the most votes moved onto the next round. Community votes help to determine the top 30 photos. After the seventh round, the top thirty photos will be presented to the judges who will decide the winner. A panel of five celebrity judges will select one winning photo using skill-based criteria.
