Program Description:
Study Abroad Photo Contest

photo contest

The photo contest is open to current Saint Joseph’s University undergraduates who studied abroad during the 2016-2017 academic year. For purposes of the contest, the academic year comprises of Fall 2016, Spring 2017, Summer 2017. This includes year abroad, semester abroad, SJU Summer Programs, non-SJU summer/winter programs, and SJU Study Tours. Photos must be original work (no professional photos) and must have been taken during their study abroad period (no photos of the entrant).

Subject Matter
Entries do not have to be limited to your program site. (A student studying in Florence, for example, could submit a photo taken in Vienna during an interim sojourn.) We also reserve the right to exclude any photos deemed “inappropriate” by the University. Students should submit photos in the following categories:

Photos should capture students actively engaged and learning in the classroom, on a class excursion, or other learning setting, including nontraditional settings. Photographs in this category can either be taken by or of the entrant.

Cultural Engagement
Photos should depict students participating in a local activity, actively involved in the local culture, or interacting with the local population. Photographs in this category can either be taken by or of the entrant.

Photos should be of a landmark or landscape that is clearly identifiable as an international location that captures the spirit of study abroad. Photographs in this category must have been taken by the entrant.

  • If you meet the eligibility requirements, you may submit one photograph per category.
  • Photos must be submitted in electronic form.
  • Photographs may be black-and-white or color.

Prizes will be awarded to 1st place & 2nd place winners in each category. The winners will be notified by e-mail by the CIP after the close of the contest and judging.
