UCTech 2019 Photography Contest

UC Santa Barbara's beautiful ocean backdrop and the largest gathering of IT professionals across the UC are too good to pass up! For the amateur (or professional) photographers, UCTech 2019 featured a photography contest. The theme was to "unleash our ingenuity," after all! 

A panel of judges from the UCTech 2019 Planning Committee selected three winning photographs. The best photos featured the UCSB campus as well as encompass the spirit of UCTech 2019: "IT Uncorked - Unleashing the Potential of Our Ingenuity." 

The third-place winner received a $50 Visa gift, second place received a $100 Visa gift card, and first place won a Theta V 360-degree camera from Ricoh, which also sponsored the contest. All attendees had to do to enter was post their photo(s) to a public Instagram account and use the hashtag #UCTech2019 photo. 

Congratulations to the following Instagram users and UCTech attendees who won this year's photo contest!
