Hanover has been recognized repeatedly as one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country. We want you to dust off your cameras and camera phones and show us just how photogenic our beloved campus can be by participating in Hanover's Best Shot. There will be a new contest each semester, with the best shot winning a $250 cash prize.

Submissions are now closed.

Below are ideas for what type of photos you may want to submit:

Fun and Games: Fall is full of fun and games and we want to see the evidence! Show us your photos of Homecoming, hall functions, events, and in general entertainment on campus.

Transitions: Over the next few months Hanover will showcase the change from summer to fall, and we want to see it from your point of view. Show us how beautiful Hanover is when the leaves change and the frost comes.

Downtown and Around the World: Your college experience doesn’t end when you leave campus. Share with us what you are doing in Madison, a nearby city, or as you study off campus or abroad.

Throwback: Your favorite photos from past years are welcome to the contest, no need to limit your submission to Fall 2014.

Submit your photos: bestshot@hanover.edu
