Want to be the new face of Sakai?
We are looking for new Sakai models! Every few months we change out the image featured on the Sakai homepage and it’s time to update it again.
Apparently “Sakai models have become a source of UNC bucket-list inspiration for some students,” according to this DTH article — we love this! While we usually send our team members in ITS-Teaching & Learning out to campus to take photos of students, we thought we’d have a little fun with this. We are launching a contest to find the next photo for the Sakai homepage!
Here are things to consider to give you an idea of what we’re looking for:
- Group of UNC students, faculty, and/or staff
- Must be using a mobile device — laptop, tablet, smartphone
- Extra points if you’re on UNC campus or in Carolina gear
- Photo will be cropped down to 980 x 375 pixels
- Pictures taken outside are encouraged
- Look natural and not too staged
- Have fun with it!
In order to be considered for the next photo we’ll use for the Sakai homepage, we must receive your submission by this Friday, March 10, at 5pm. Please email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will choose which picture to use and post it next week during Spring Break. We will continue to accept photos after that, and they may make their way onto Sakai or other ITS publications later.
Photo Release Form
Please note that pictures we receive may be used for Sakai or other ITS-related material. In order for us to use your photos, everyone pictured must sign this Release Form, stating that you give consent to the University to reproduce, distribute, and display these photos and identify you. If there is anyone in the picture who has not signed the Release Form, they must be far enough where we can crop them out or blur their faces.
Email your photos and everyone’s signed release forms to email@example.com and identify the photographer and everyone in your photos.

So, why is there a random cat hidden in our Sakai photos? This mysterious cat is actually not so random. He is the mascot of the Sakai Community — meet the Sakaiger!
We can’t wait to see your photos! The picture we choose will be posted to the Sakai homepage next week during Spring Break. Who knows, it could be you and your friends!
