Entries will be judged on the ability to convey a cross-cultural experience in a single photograph. A cross-cultural experience can be defined as student interaction with the local population of the host country and/or the portrayal of the essence of the student’s study abroad experience. Photos of landscapes will be accepted, however, we prefer that you submit photos that exhibit cultural immersion in a country outside the United States. Participants may only enter one photo and the photo must be taken by the individual. All photos should be accompanied with a text describing the cross-cultural component of the photo. Submissions will be judged by a committee of University members. Travel vouchers will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

Submit all photos to the Study Abroad Office by the deadline with a completed entry form. Entries will be on display during International Education Week, November 18 - 22. The location of the display will be announced closer to the time of the event.
