Photo Contest

The Office of Overseas Study hosts a photo contest each fall for those who studied abroad in the previous year. Entries are judged by a committee of representatives of the Office of Overseas Study. The committee seeks photos that are representative of students' international experience. Entries are judged within two categories:

  • People: Photos will be judged on quality and content, with special consideration given to images that depict student interaction with the host culture, students in the academic environment, local culture, and history. 
  • Places: Photos will be judged based on the best use of architectural, landscape, cityscape, or surrounding environmental elements of the place studied in or visited during the experience, with special consideration given to images depicting students.

The 2015 Photo Contest will open during Summer 2015.

It is hard to overstate the influence this travel has had on me, on who I am today. It has shaped my world view, what I find interesting, and what I think about.”
