Celebrate your graduation: Share your photos, win Ikea gift card!


Sarah Castle of Clearwater shared her graduation photo from St. Petersburg College's ceremony. Share yours, and you could win a $200 IKEA gift card!

Whether you or your loved one is graduating from college, high school or kindergarten, we want to see the photos. 

How it works:

  • E-mail pictures to [email protected] with photo details, the grad's name and contact info (phone number & e-mail, not for publication) in the body of the message. Files must be JPEGs and less than 700K in size.
  • You also can join's Community Photo Gallery and upload your photos.
  • Become a Facebook fan and share your photo on our wall, clearly labeling it as a "Grad Photo Contest" entry. We will then publish the photo in our Grads Photo Gallery.

Where you'll see the photos: View your photos in's Grads Photo Gallery and vote for your favorites. Select photos also will be highlighted on's homepage, here in Let's Talk and on The Gradebook.

Ikea The prizes: Two prizes will be awarded: one for the photo that gets the most votes by readers -- see voting tab below the photo -- and the other will be selected by St. Petersburg Times editors. Each winner will get a $200 gift card for IKEA (think dorm room decor).
