Who is eligible to enter?
The contest is open to all employees of New Hanover Regional Medical Center, NHRMC Physician Group, and Pender Memorial Hospital.
Can I send more than one photo and how long ago should the photo have been taken?
You can submit up to three photos, which have not been previously submitted, into the photo contest.
The theme of the contest calls for me to illustrate a lifestyle of wellness and answering the question "Why is your health important to you?" But I am having a hard time figuring out what that means exactly, what would that "look like?"
Your photo should show reasons you feel it is important to stay healthy and/or subjects engaging in activities that are "Good For You." Some of the photos that have been submitted are:
- Families and friends interacting with one another
- People fishing, hiking or doing some other physical activity
- Playtime with pets
- Enjoying vacations
- Gardening, canoeing, biking and pursuing other hobbies
In short, anything that inspires you to lead a lifestyle of wellness.
What are the guidelines for submission and high-resolution photos? If I don't know, can I still enter the contest?
Yes. Although we prefer digital photos that are at least 300 dpi, we will also accept prints. You may be asked to resubmit your photos if they do not meet the resolution requirements. We reserve the right to review and disqualify photographs considered inappropriate for publication. Any prints sent to us will be included in the judging, however, they may not be uploaded for inclusion into the slideshow immediately. Prints may be picked up in the Marketing Department at the end of the contest. Make sure to put your name and contact information on the back of any prints.
I have a great photo that fits the contest theme perfectly, but it was taken by a professional photographer. Can I still enter it in the contest?
No. Unfortunately, only photographs taken by amateur photographers are eligible for the "Good For You" photo contest.
Do I have to be in the photo?
No. You can be the photographer or just an observer of the photo.
How long will the contest last and when will the winners be announced?
Submissions for the "Good For You" photo essay contest will be accepted from June 1-August 15, 2011. Photos will be judged by an outside panel of experts and winners will be announced sometime in September. By submitting your photos you understand that they may also be used in open enrollment, benefits and wellness initiative materials.
