Take your Snapshot INSIDE a Gemstone!

#LECOLERubyAndSapphire Photomicrograph Contest

#LECOLERubyAndSapphire Photomicrograph Contest (OCT 2020)

With the reopening of L’ÉCOLE’s exhibition “Discover the Gemstones, Ruby & Sapphire”, you’re invited to experience a new feature during your visit – take your own photomicrograph of gemstones as seen from the microscope! You may also win a prize with this photo. Check below for the instructions.

Microscope with iPad

During your exhibition tour at our School:

1.       Capture your own photo of the inside of the ruby or sapphire from the microscope onto the iPad connected;

2.       Scan the QR code generated on the iPad with your smartphone;

3.       Share your own photomicrograph on your phone as a Facebook post or Instagram post with a creative caption;

4.       Check-in at L’ÉCOLE Asia Pacific and hashtag #LECOLERubyAndSapphire. Don’t forget to open your post or account to “public” for us to find you!

Every Monday from October 1st to 31st, our team will collect your photomicrograph with the hashtag and contact you to confirm your contest entry. Within the same week, 2 most beautiful photomicrographs with the most creative captions will be selected by the exhibition co-curators Billie Hughes and Olivier Segura. In total, 8 winners of the 4 subsequent weeks in October will be awarded each with the L'ÉCOLE Gift Certificate to redeem any one class in our School in Hong Kong!

Stay tuned on our social media for any updates, and check out if YOU are the winner!
