It’s been a decade since the Millennium Arch was installed on the lawn of Missouri University of Science and Technology’s Castleman Hall. To commemorate the event, a contest is being held for the best photographs of the landmark, with $500 in prizes to be awarded in each of four categories. The contest is sponsored by the Missouri S&T Campus Art Committee and the New York Foundation for the Arts.
Photographers are invited to submit three high-resolution (at least 300 dpi) photographs of the Millennium Arch by email to email@example.com. Photographers must designate whether they are a high school student, college student, faculty or staff of Missouri S&T, or from the community. The submission deadline is Wednesday, Sept. 15.
An exhibition of selected photographs will be mounted in conjunction with S&T’s Homecoming in October. A program will be held on the afternoon of Friday, Oct. 1 and winners will be announced. Photos selected as finalists will be displayed on campus for a month. Winning entries will be permanently displayed on campus after the exhibition concludes.
The Millennium Arch was designed by artist Edwina Sandys and was completed by S&T’s High-Pressure Waterjet Laboratory, under the direction of Dr. David Summers, Curators’ Professor of mining engineering at S&T.
