In Brief

To celebrate the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) Instagram debut, DSS Public Affairs launched a social media campaign called the Pic Ur Shot photo tournament, March 2. Assistant Secretary Michael Evanoff announced the campaign in a video shared on the Department’s intranet. In the DSS Pic Ur Shot tournament, photos that showcase the work of DSS will compete in four elimination rounds. Employees can vote for their favorites on the Pick Ur Shot Tournament page, and the final winning photo will be the first DSS Instagram post. Voting will continue through March 12 before the final photo is revealed. Photo courtesy of DSS
