Hill College

Rebel Selfie Contest Guidelines

General Rules

Hill College will hold a monthly contest for the best selfies related to Hill College activities or locations. Each month we will suggest a theme and invite students or friends of the college to post a selfie onto Facebook.  All entries should be tagged #RebelSelfies. A winner or winners will be selected each month and Hill College “swag” prizes will be awarded.*

What is a selfie?

A selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a handheld digital camera or camera phone. It may include one, two or several people. Selfies are often shared on social networking services such as Facebook. They are often casual, and are typically taken either with a camera held at arm’s length or in a mirror.

Purpose

To generate enthusiasm around Hill College activities and to increase social networking among friends of Hill College.

Facebook Rules

  1.  “Like” the Hill College Facebook page.

  2. Take a creative selfie related to the props, topics, and/or designated location mentioned for each month’s contest.

  3.  Upload your photo with the hashtag #RebelSelfie and tag the Hill College Facebook page.

  4. The student with the most “likes” from peers and faculty will be the winner.

A staff favorite may also be selected for prizes.

Prizes will vary, but will usually be Hill College promotional items or gift certificates from local restaurants.
