Thanks to all of you who submitted photos to the Beautiful B-School Photo Contest. The last week of April saw a swell in submissions, which brought the total number of photos to approximately 50 pictures and provided photos for most of the schools in the B-school Zones section of Accepted.com. Thank you!
All contestants receive an Honorable Mention prize — an Accepted Beautiful -B School Photo Contest T-shirt, and all will be considered for the top 3 prizes, the Amazon gift certificates described below.
I am happy to announce today the judges for the Beautiful B-School Photo Contest. They are:
- Della Bradshaw, Managing Editor of Business Education at the Financial Times.
- Jeff Gangemi, Businessweek reporter and recently accepted MBA student to the Johnson School at Cornell.
- Forrest Gump, long-time MBA blogger, winner of a Clear Admit Best of Blogging award, and member of Chicago‘s MBA class of ’09.
- Apurv Pandit, editor of PaGaLGuY.com .
- Leila Pirnia, co-founder of MBA Podcaster.
- Peter Regan, founder of MBA Math and professor at the Tuck School of Business.
Thank you to all the judges who have volunteered your time for this noble 😉 and fun pursuit. We should shortly have the pictures posted and will then ask the judges to vote on their top choices. They will assign a "1" to their top choice, a "2" to their second choice, and a "3" to their third choice, etc.
The picture with the lowest number of votes wins. Since a contestant can win a maximum of one Amazon gift certificate, after the first place prize winner is picked (a $200 Amazon gift certificate) , his or her pictures will be removed from consideration and the next lowest vote number will receive the second prize, a $100 Amazon gift certificate. Then the second prize winner’s pictures will be removed from consideration, and we will award the third place price ($50 Amazon gift certificate) to the submitter with the next lowest total. I will vote in the event of a tie.
Stay tuned to find out who the lucky, or should I say talented, three winners are. We will also announce when as yet unposted submissions are posted in the B-school Zones.
