WashU Travel Banner

Help us spread WashU spirit around the globe—and social media—this summer!


Through Sept. 2, 2019, the Washington University Alumni Association invites you to participate in our second vacation photo contest by submitting a photo of yourself enjoying your travel destination with your WashU gear. Shirts, water bottles, umbrellas, sunglasses—any WashU item is fair game!

We will choose one grand-prize winner to receive an assortment of WashU gear to take along on future vacations. In addition, each entrant will receive a WashU luggage tag, which will be mailed after the contest ends.

The winning photo will best reflect WashU spirit and the location where the photo was taken, although photo quality also will be considered.

To show off the creativity of our traveling alumni and friends, we will publish submitted photos on this website and on one or more of the Alumni Association’s social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Contest Guidelines:

  • Photos must be submitted by Sept. 2, 2019 (Labor Day).
  • Photos must include WashU gear.
  • Your vacation location should be captured in your photo.
  • Photos should be clear (not blurry) and no bigger than 25 MB.
  • We will accept only .jpg, .png, and .gif file formats.
  • If your submission includes any children under the age of 18, consent to publish your photo must be provided by a parent or legal guardian. A release form will be sent to you upon receipt of your contest entry. The form must be completed by a parent or legal guardian and returned to the Alumni Association in order for your entry to be considered.
  • The Washington University Alumni Association reserves the right to withhold publication of photos containing inappropriate content or those taken by professional photographers.
  • We will accept no more than two submissions per person.

Alumni and friends who entered last year’s contest are encouraged to participate again!
