The annual photo and video contest showcases co-op or internship students applying their education in the workplace. Photos, videos and the accompanying information will highlight student work experiences. We are proud of the amazing work our students do all over the world and will display submitted photos and videos in various locations and formats – brochures, advertisements, posters, websites and even on our walls.
IMPORTANT NOTE Submission of photographs and videos to the Co-op Photo and Video Contest gives Camosun College permission to publish, edit, exhibit, play, transfer, and otherwise use the photos and videos for marketing, administrative, and educational purposes.
The Photo and Video Contest involves photos and videos from co-op or internship work terms, completed anytime from September to August of the current academic year. Camosun students must have registered in a Co-op or Internship work term within this time period. Final awarding of prizes is contingent upon the winners successfully completing their work term with a passing grade.
One digital photo may be submitted. The photo must show the student in a co-op or internship work environment. A signed photo release available from Camosun must be submitted with for any identifiable person in any photo. Photos showing children's faces will not be accepted. Each photo submission must include a brief description (50 words or less). The digital photo must be in focus with a file size of at least 1 MB and in JPEG format.
Videos are to be one minute long and show the co-op or internship student in the work environment performing a variety of tasks. Students may explain what they are doing throughout the video and/or tell the story of their work term experiences. Videos must be uploaded to youtube.com to be eligible. Visit YouTube support for an explanation of how to do this.
The contest will be judged by a committee of members of the CECS department. Winners will be contacted directly and the results posted on the CECS website.
