Bookstore holds picture contest


The NMU Bookstore is holding a contest where Northern students can enter photos of themselves on spring break dressed in NMU apparel. Paul A. Wright, assistant manager at the bookstore, said students should be imaginative but cautious with the photos they enter. “Photos should be tasteful, creative and original,” he said. “It doesn’t matter where you are or what you are doing, but be safe and please keep all activities legal.” Wright added that the bookstore has the right to refuse any photo. All photo submissions must be received by March 14. First place will receive a $100 gift certificate to the bookstore, second place will receive a digital camera and third place will receive an NMU hooded sweatshirt. Print photos must be at least 4″x 6″ in size and digital photos must be at least 640 x 480 pixels and 72 dpi so that they may be printed. All digital submissions must be sent to [email protected] with “photo contest” in the subject line, according to the contest rules on the NMU Bookstore Web site. Any photographs submitted will be posted for viewing in the bookstore but will not be returned. Photos entered may also be used for promotional purposes, Wright said. The decision of the judges is final, and the judges will consist of NMU Bookstore personnel, Wright added. Rules are posted in the bookstore or at
