Photo Contest

Education Abroad is excited to announce our 15th annual Capstone International Photo Contest.

We know many of you captured some great shots while you studied abroad as a UA student. We want to see them! Photos will be classified into one of four categories:

  • Landscape – buildings and/or natural scenery of a city, site, or area
  • Local Color – highlights the people and culture of places visited
  • UA Spirit – UA students showing their school pride while abroad
  • Crimson Captured (International students only) – the UA campus or Tuscaloosa area as seen through the eyes of UA international students.

 

With your submission, please include your name, the category in which you are entering the photo, title of the photo, location the photo was taken, and the name of your study abroad program. Each contestant is allowed to submit no more than 4 photos total. Make sure all photos are high resolution. Winner in each category will receive scholarship prizes!

Photos must be high-resolution and be submitted via email to UAphotocontest@gmail.com. The deadline for entry is Thursday, October 26, 2017 at 11 p.m. By submitting a photograph(s) you guarantee that you are the original and sole creator of the submitted photograph(s) and that you own all rights to the photograph(s). Furthermore, you grant Education Abroad and Capstone International the right to use the photograph(s).
