The 2017 Bulldog Beginnings Photo Contest Rules

As part of the annual Bulldog Beginnings initiative, social media will be an important component of showcasing the fun and diversity of events that kick off the 2017-18 academic year at Ferris State University. Bulldog Beginnings is hosting a photo contest that is open to all Ferris students as part of this year’s celebration. We look forward to students showcasing their Ferris pride at the various Bulldog Beginnings events, this fall.

Prizes will be awarded as follows. The top three selected photos, each day of Bulldog Beginnings, will receive a free Bulldog T-shirt or Bulldog hoodie. Daily winners will be entered into a contest to win a Ferris pullover with a Bulldog logo, in addition to other smaller prizes. Winners will be selected and notified by email.
