#InspiringYale Instagram Challenge

This year’s Founders Day will feature the fourth annual #InspiringYale Instagram Challenge. Instagram users on campus during Founders Day celebrations are encouraged to share some of their favorite spots at Yale. Participants should post their photos so that they are publicly visible on Instagram & tag them #InspiringYale to enter the contest. Photos must be taken, tagged #InspiringYale, and posted on Oct. 5, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The first place prize is lunch with President Peter Salovey for the winner and a friend at a mutually agreed upon date this academic year. A team of judges from the Yale Office of Public Affairs & Communications (OPAC) will select the first place prizewinner and will announce the winner the following day on the Yale Instagram. The prizes for the second and third place winners will be announced shortly. Those prizewinners will also be determined by OPAC and notified via comment on their Instagram photos.

Rules for submission

  • The contest is open to anyone participating in Yale’s Founders Day events on Oct. 5 (Current OPAC employees and interns are not eligible).
  • Photos must be original and have been taken and posted by the entrant on Founders Day between 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. They must also be publicly visible on Instagram.
