Program Description:
Study Abroad Photo Contest

Photo Contest 1   Photo Contest 2

Photos should be turned in to the Study Abroad Office (102 Brister Hall).

Deadline for Submission: 4:00pm Friday, November 5

 The 2014 Photo Contest Theme is "Engaging with the Host Community & Culture"

Entries will be judged on the ability to convey a cross-cultural experience through "Engaging with Host Community & Culture" in a single photograph. This can be defined as personal interaction with the local population of the host country and/or the portrayal of the essence of your international travel 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 or in Memphis if you are an international student. Participants may only enter one photo and the photo must be taken by the individual. All photos should be accompanied with a brief text describing the cross-cultural component of the photo. Submissions will be judged by a committee. Travel vouchers will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners for each catagory. 

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.
