Inspired by Andrew Sullivan's long-running but now sadly defunct View From Your Window contest and our enthusiasm for collegiate architecture/landscapes, we're continuing the tradition, with our own spin. We're now requesting photograph submissions of views from the windows of offices, lecture halls, libraries, dining halls, labs, dorms, and other spaces (anything really!) on university and college campuses for a feature we're calling View From Your Ivory Tower. To be considered, high-resolution photograph submissions should be emailed to rjacobs@psmag.com and must include the name of the institution and a very brief description of the buildings or landscapes pictured. By submitting, you are also agreeing to let us publish your photographs.

In the process, we hope to provide everyone a peek behind the walls and beyond the gates of the institutions where the research we write about is so often conducted.

Every Friday, a different photograph from the batch will be selected and published, and our readers will have the chance to guess where the photograph was taken by submitting their answers via email, Twitter, or Facebook. Each week, the taker of the selected photograph and one reader to correctly guess the campus will win a one-year gift subscription to Pacific Standard's print magazine. In the process, we hope to provide everyone a peek behind the walls and beyond the gates of the institutions where the research we write about is so often conducted.

Happy snapping!
