Photo of the Month Contest

MIPA is offering students a monthly photo contest included FREE with your MIPA membership! Winners will be featured on MIPA’s website/social media and on J-Day 2022.

Photo of the Month Contests start NOW!

Contests close at 11:59 p.m. on the following dates:

  • September 30 (This month may include photos from the start of school in August.)
  • October 31
  • November 30
  • December 22
  • January 31
  • February 28
  • March 31
  • April 30


  • Every entry must be a photo taken since the deadline for the previous monthly contest and intended for publication in a school newspaper, yearbook, magazine, broadcast or website.
  • Each entry should be student-produced work.
  • Each publication is limited to ONE entry per month.
  • Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Image file size should not exceed 2MB and each photo needs an accompanying caption (copy and paste into the submission form). To resize an image to meet the requirement, use Photoshop or an online image converter (ex: PicResize).
  • No critiques or feedback will be provided by the judges for each submission—this is solely a recognition event and must be run this way to make sure winners are announced by the 10th of the following month.
