UC Clermont officially unveiled and announced the winners of the first ever student Instagram Photo Contest.

“We were really blown away by the amount of submissions and the talent of the student photographers,” said Melissa Batka, who organized the contest and exhibition.

Submissions were divided into four categories: Food as Art, Campus Life, Nature, and, of course, Selfies.

Winners of each category are listed below:

Food as Art: Samantha Padgett        Campus Life: Kasey Arnett










Nature: Joanna Lawrence              Selfie: Maggie Cowens


“It’s really different from all the other galleries,” said student Robbie Ogden. “I really like the nature ones, you get to see all the areas in and around the campus.”

All of the finalist’s work are currently on display in the Park National Bank art gallery. Stop by to see them before the new exhibit, “50 Plus” arrives on March 3.
