The results are in!

Thanks to all who participated for making the #MomentMakers contest a success.

The winner is Sport and Entertainment Management student Shreyas Saboo! His photo of Coach Will Muschamp celebrating last season's win over Georgia received the most votes. Shreyas wins a $50 Barefoot Outfitters gift card and HRSM-themed gifts.

Second place goes to Sport and Entertainment Management alumna Layne Shinaberry for her photo from March Madness in Columbia, and third place to Tourism Management student Savannah Salazar for her photo of QB Ryan Hilinski and others celebrating that same win over Georgia.

Congratulations to the winners!


During these strange times we are all missing a summer of sports, festivals, travel and more. Help us celebrate the good times had and those to come by sharing your best photos in the #MomentMakers Photo Contest!

Contest Theme:

This photo contest is hosted by the University of South Carolina’s College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management, and we are moment makers. Crafting exceptional experiences that make life more vibrant is what we’re all about.

Enter the #MomentMakers contest by sharing your best photo of a memorable sport, entertainment, hospitality, tourism, retail or fashion experience. The photo can be from any time in your life and should capture an experience that is special to you and inspires your love for our industries.

What are those moments that make you smile? Maybe it’s a photo of that time you got to go to the World Series, or your big retail internship, or that first time you traveled abroad! Or maybe it’s that dinner you shared with friends at your favorite restaurant. All moments, big and small, are welcomed!
