Ohio University

Instagram Contest

Return to your Athens State of Mind by recreating a photo of an OHIO memory. For our 2018 Instagram contest, we challenge you to post two photos. One from OHIO's past, and another photo of you recreating that scene today. You can recreate an old photo from your own collection, or browse the University Archives

Instagram Contest Rules

  1. Post two photos on Instagram, one old and one recreation. 
  2. Use the hashtags #OHIOHC2018 and #OHIOThenAndNow to be entered into the contest.
  3. We ask that PRIVATE accounts are made PUBLIC during the contest, so we are able to see your entries.
  4. Each day of Homecoming, a winner will be chosen and we will repost their photos on the OHIO Alumni Instagram page.
  5. The prizes get better each day! Winners will be direct messaged with details about how to claim their prize.
