Call for Submissions: Quick, Easy, Fun Cell-phone photo contest at QC

65-30: SPACE/MEMORY calls us to a greater awareness of the spaces that we inhabit during our time at Queens College, and encourages an increased appreciation for the thousands of stories unfolding around us at 65-30 Kissena Boulevard.  QC is home to over 20,000 students, faculty and staff from all walks of life, united at some level by our shared experience of the campus.  As we go about our daily routines, often so quickly that we forget to take in our surroundings, we can easily lose sight of the fact that our environments are more than just the blurry backdrops to our lives; they are active participants.  Our campus places shape the moments that we spend here each week, and their work does not end when we depart for the next stage of our day.  Instead, they continue to lend significance to the daily worlds of thousands of others with whom we may never cross paths.  In this way, the memories that we form with each passing moment are both unique and shared, wholly ours yet part of a collective memory formed by all who have and will call Queens College theirs.

 All members of the campus community are invited to submit photos of spaces on and around Queens College that hold particular significance to them.  Content can range from a favorite bench on the quad to a special vantage point of the city skyline to a spot in a local park or eatery–the possibilities are limitless.  The only real guideline is that all photos must be taken with a cell phone, now a primary means of memory recording, to allow this special awareness of space to flow with the continuity of everyday experience–turning off the autopilot does not have to cause a major disruption to our daily lives.

 Images must be submitted via Instagram to #my6530 or via email to no later thanSunday, September 27.
