Jostens also hosts an annual nationwide photo contest that allows students to submit their photography into five different categories. Each category is judged by professionals. Last year, co-editor Emily Huddleston won first place in portraits and honorable mention in student life. Jostens also has a category of the contest open to members of the school who aren’t in Interactive Media. Students who post to ReplayIt, a photo sharing site that allows for staff of the yearbook to use photos that you’ve taken, can enter in their own category and win various prizes and have a feature in Jostens yearly Look Book which is sent to schools nationwide. If you’re not normally featured in the yearbook, or if you have a photo that you think would be perfect, post it to ReplayIt so that it can be immortalized in the 2018 edition of The “J.”
