In the game, Max Caulfield (protagonist and photography student extraordinaire) is encouraged by her teacher to enter a photography contest focusing on “Everyday Heroes.” Drawing on this, Square Enix’s scholarship contest will feature the same theme. The official description requests “photos of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.”

Submissions currently featured on the scholarship website include everything from soldiers and firefighters to dogs, mothers, and grandparents. So feel free to utilize some artistic license.

According to the Instagram announcement, only US and Canadian residents are eligible to enter. Three finalists will be selected and “will have their photo printed, framed, and signed by the DONTNOD staff.” Their photographs will also be “featured on Square Enix social channels.” Even if you don’t win, as an aspiring photographer, you may benefit from that level of exposure. (No pun intended.)

The winner will receive a very helpful $10,000 scholarship which, while it certainly wouldn’t cover the cost of a semester of college nowadays, would definitely help out quite a bit with the various expenses that go along with being a college student.  In fact, the scholarship’s website even says that this scholarship can be put “towards art school tuition, art classes, or art supplies at [the] winner’s discretion,” so you have a bit of flexibility on that front.

Delving a little deeper, the rules of the contest state that all entrants must be 18 years of age and older to agree to the official rules and enter the contest. If you don’t quite meet this cutoff, however, have no fear! A parent or legal guardian can agree in your place!

You have until February 16 at 11:59pm PST to enter your (max 2MB) photograph, so grab your cameras and start snapping pics!
