The entry period is October 2, 2012 to March 5, 2013
To enter this contest, create an original entry piece that shares with us what you want to achieve in your personal and professional life after college. Follow the theme: This is how I "Frame My Future." Your creation must be submitted through the online entry form, within one image, in a .JPG or .PNG format, and must be fully viewable and/or readable online. The entry form also includes a section to submit a short accompanying description of your entry piece (maximum of 500 characters). Some example entry piece ideas:

Please Note: The complete and overall entry piece must be original and the entrant's own work. For example, do not submit a company advertisement, photo you found online, or stock art as your sole and final entry piece. You may incorporate these elements within your creative entry. Submission of an entry piece that is not the entrant’s own original work, may result in disqualification. A professional portrait, such as a senior photo, will not be accepted as an entry. These are owned by the photographer.
