Your favorite study abroad photo could be a winner!
Students are encouraged to enter our annual Study Abroad Photography Contest. Each student may enter up to two photographs taken while engaged in study abroad, with each entry accompanied by a short narrative of not more than 50 words.
The focus here is not on “Selfies,” but rather on capturing images that convey a story about the country, region, or your experience therein. As an example, here are some winning entries from a similar competition at San Diego State University, although we do not require a single theme.
Participants must be current or past SJC students, and the photo must have been taken during an SJC international experience — whether in program led by faculty, SJC exchange programs, or other academic programs. Along with the photo, students must submit a narrative of not more than 50 words that connects the photo to the international experience and explains why the image holds meaning for the student.
An individual may submit a maximum of two photos, each with a unique accompanying 50-word narrative.
Submit your photographs by Monday, Oct. 2, 2017.
Minor digital enhancement is permitted to your color or black and white image, but images that have been significantly modified or appear unnatural (or very different from what the naked eye sees when looking through the camera lens) will be disqualified. SJC retains sole discretion as to what constitutes appropriate and inappropriate image modifications, based on the guidelines listed below.
Photographers retain the copyright to their photographs. By entering in the contest, photographers agree to have their submitted photograph displayed at the SJC Global Studies Conference, on the SJC website, and/or any other SJC distribution materials without any fee or other form of compensation required. Additionally, you agree that SJC may display winning photos in a "past winners" photo gallery, and may make and retain copies of the photograph for archival purposes.
Photos will be credited to the photographer named in the entry form. Entries (including non winning entries) may be selected for display or use on other SJC web pages, without permission from the photographer. Entries will never be used by SJC in any manner for sales.
Entries will be judged on the basis of creativity, photographic quality, and effectiveness in conveying a narrative relationship to the international theme and purpose.
