We have a winner!
Congratulations to @ericgreene, the winner of our spring break #bookstagram contest! Thank you to everyone who entered. Your photos (and reading material) gave us serious travel envy. Follow @nyupublishing on Instagram for updates about the NYU Center for Publishing and more about our next contest. We hope everyone had a safe and happy spring break!
Spring break is almost here! Any avid reader knows the best part of a week-long break from class is the chance to catch up on all of the books and magazines he/she has been dying to read all semester. To help celebrate your freedom to read whatever you want, the NYU School of Professional Studies Center for Publishing is launching its first-ever Instagram contest.
To enter, follow @NYUPublishing on Instagram and post a photo of your favorite spring break reading location (include a book, magazine, or digital publication, of course!) with the hashtag #bookstagram. Photos can include people and props—be creative! The contest is now open, and you can post your photo until Sunday, March 20 at 10:00 p.m.
Share and promote your image during the contest period. The photo that gets the most likes on Instagram (and adheres to the contest guidelines) will be deemed the winner. That winner will be announced on Monday, March 21 at noon, and will receive a $25 gift card from Barnes & Noble. Two runners up will receive an NYUSPS umbrella.
