MVC Spirit Photo Contest - Show Your Magnum Opus Spirit






The success of our men's and womens basketball teams and their participation in the Missouri Valley Conference Tournaments in March is a great time to spotlight the pride and spirit of Creighton fans. It is all about our University's Magnum Opus spirit. You can be a part of the fan-fueled fun by sharing your photos displaying the best of Creighton spirit. Join us as we show the world how we celebrate and embrace the greatness of our University. Lets focus on our greatness!

All it takes to participate are three simple steps:

  1. Snap a picture. When you see Creighton spirit unfolding in front of you, take a picture of it with your iPhone or Android device. Note: photos showing offensive behavior or with alcohol in them will be excluded from the contest.
  2. Upload your picture to Instagram. Open the Instagram app on your iPhone or Android device and choose the appropriate photo from your phone?s photo library. Crop and edit using the tools provided within the app.
  3. Tag the picture with #gojays. Before you share, make sure to write a caption that includes the tag #gojays. This is how we will collect the photos at the end of each day.

Throughout the men's and women's tournaments (March 7-10 and March 14-17, respectively), we will upload all of the appropriate* photos to a Facebook album and choose a daily winner. Each winner will be notified on Instagram and will receive a Creighton t-shirt and recognition on our Facebook page.
