General Rules

Allegany College of Maryland (ACM) will hold a bi-monthly contest for the most popular selfies related to an ACM theme, activity or location. Each month beginning September 1, 2014, we will suggest a theme and invite ACM students to post a selfie onto Facebook and/or Twitter. In order to be eligible, students need to "Share" or "Retweet" the contest.  All entries should be tagged #acmOhSnap. A winner will be selected for each theme by the most "likes" and/or Twitter "favorites" and awarded a Sheetz $25 Gift Card.*

What is a selfie?

A selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a handheld digital camera or camera phone. It may include one, two or several people. Selfies are often shared on social networking services such as Facebook and Twitter. They are often casual, and are typically taken either with a camera held at arm's length or in a mirror.
