Global Perspectives

This year’s theme is “Global Perspectives,” allowing you the opportunity to share your view of the world via photographs. During your study abroad experience, we encourage you to immerse yourself in a new country and culture in order to learn about your academic discipline, yourself, and the world.

Students have an opportunity to submit up to two entries in each of the following categories:

  1. Global Engagement. Show us how you engage with the local culture or the greater world while abroad.
  2. Portraiture. Share a portrait or artistic representation of a person or persons who you met or observed during your travels.
  3. Landscape/Striking Scenes. Capture the beauty or energy of the geographic setting(s) in which you studied and explored.

*Students may submit no more than two photos in each category.

Enter your photos by filling out an online submission form.

Deadline: Entries must be received by Friday, March 13, 2015.
Prizes: Prizes will be awarded to the best over-all photo, and the top 3 candidates in each category!
