<x-msg://36/>. *The subject line should say "Photo Contest Submission" 
and the body should include your name and the name of the program on 
which you took the photographs. Like we covered during the pre-departure 
orientations in May and last December, photos containing color, 
creativity, and you wearing Mason/CGE gear in an iconic place make for 
great study abroad photos! You can also share your photos with CGE on 
facebook <> to get friends 
excited about the contest!

*2) Bring 8x10 hard copies of the same two best photos with the official 
entry form 
<> to 
CGE's office in the Johnson Center, Room 235 or snail mail them to: *

This year's winners will receive their prizes and be officially 
recognized by the Center for Global Education (CGE) at the CGE 
Pre-Departure Orientation on December 8, 2012. Past winners have had 
their photos featured and published online, and they've received gift 
certificates and Mason gear in return.

*The top prizes for this contest will be even BIGGER than last year's, 
so submit your photos and stay tuned!*

Good luck, and be sure to join us after your first day of classes on 
Monday, August 27 for both of our Welcome Week Events 

*Last but not least, Mason's Office of Media and Public Relations is 
building up their Pinterest boards, and one of the boards is named 
"Mason Around the Globe." *Please share a photo of yourself wearing 
Mason gear in a cool location--a memorable landmark, tourist location, 
yummy restaurant, working or volunteering, etc. by emailing the photo, 
your name, a little bit of info about where you are in the photo and 
what you're doing to: [log in to unmask]
