Industry Photo

IOPFDA requests that all scholarship winners have a photo taken with the industry representative who provided a letter of reference on the scholarship applicant’s behalf. Please make sure it is with the industry representative, not the educational reference. IOPFDA would like to use this photo in future publications to promote the annual scholarship program.
Please go to the industry representative’s office or meet and have your photo taken with them.

Recommendations:

  • Business casual clothing or better.
  • The photo can be taken outdoors or indoors.
  • If the photo is taken outdoors, no sunglasses.
  • Have the photo taken in a location that showcases the company logo.
  • The logo can be in the background of the photo in a business setting.
  • Take the photo with the industry representative presenting a congratulatory handshake to the scholarship applicant.
  • Use a high-res camera or a smart phone.
