How Do You See Chicago? We’ll Pay You for Your Photos of Our City

Looking North to Downtown Chicago from the Top of IIT Tower

Got some photos of locations in or around Chicago that you love?  Send them to us and we’ll pay you for them! The photos do not need to be new; they can come from your existing collections.

IIT Magazine is taking submissions of student photos that show all that is special about Chicago — through the eyes of IIT students. Photos will be selected based on both the unique point of view expressed and artistic quality. We are especially interested in Chicago photos that illustrate an IIT connection, but any photos focusing on Chicago are welcome. A handful of photos will be selected for publication in the winter issue of IIT Magazine. Students whose photos are selected for final publication will receive a $50 Visa gift card for each photo selected.

Send your photo entries to or Please be sure to include the following:

  • Student name, major, and year
  • A few sentences about your photo or what Chicago means to you

Please note that all photos submitted must be high resolution (300 dpi or greater) and must be received by December 8, 2012.
