The Office of Overseas Study hosts a photo contest each fall for students 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 and that include students. Entries are judged within three categories:
- IU Students Abroad: Photos should feature IU students engaged in learning activities during their study abroad programs.
- Local Culture: Photos should feature unique aspects of local culture or local history.
- Local Environment: Photos should feature unique aspects of architectural, landscape, cityscape, or surrounding environmental elements of the location abroad. Preference will be given to photos that include IU students.
The 2016-17 Photo Contest will open during Summer 2017.
