#YUDiscover photo contest highlights beauty of York campuses

Michelle Fucchansky’s winning photo is captioned “One of my favourite places to go on my lunch break”

A campus-wide photo contest held in May highlighted some of the stunning places on campus through the eyes of students, faculty and staff.

The #YUDiscover Photo Contest was designed to encourage the York community to discover and share spaces at the University’s campuses.

Entrants were asked to snap a photo on campus, share it on Twitter or Instagram, and include the #YUDiscover hashtag with their entry.

The winner, selected by York’s Communications & Public Affairs Division, was selected May 29 and won a pair of gold tickets to the Rogers Cup event, which will be held on campus at the Aviva Centre from Aug. 5 to 13.

York staff member Michelle Fucchansky was selected as the winner, and her photo was chosen based on originality, inspiring caption and visual impact.

Of her winning photo, Fucchansky said “It is my favourite lunch spot on campus and I never thought I’d win. It just looked so beautiful I had to take a photo of it.”
