Study Abroad Photo Contest

We've had such a great response to our Study Abroad Photo Contest with photos from programs and adventures around the world. This past year we had amazing shots from Costa Rica, Cuba, Germany, Japan, France, India, Italy, and more. While travel has been on hold for the time being, we want to celebrate the memorable travels from our student and alum. We're looking for the best photos yet with insightful narratives about the experiences of both student (any study abroad) and alum (any travel). Here are our winners from 2019 and we look forward to celebrating your global memories. Start thinking about our categories and enter our third annual photo contest.

Deadline: Friday, September 25, 2020.

  • Cultural Knowledge: New cultural information learned while abroad about things such as art, architecture, history, traditions, technology, and so on.
  • Connections: Meaningful connections made while abroad, people driven experiences, foreign language interactions, and/or communication with locals.
  • Challenges: Intercultural experiences that challenged you while abroad, moments that pushed you out of your comfort zone, unexpected adventures, and/or skills you gained to adapt to unknown situations.
  • #SpartanPride: Photos that show your Spartan Pride Abroad and include T-shirts, signs, flags, and so on.
