Submit your exotic photos

UVU faculty, staff and students are encouraged to submit photos from the 2008-2009 academic school year.

From a girl on a train to terraced mountains, winning photos for the 2008 contest can be viewed online. Photos generally come from students and employees who have participated in study abroad programs during the summer and come from countries around the world.

The International Photo Contest is sponsored by the International Center, which works to expand intercultural experiences and transcend cultural differences. The International Center wants to support UVU’s mission to prepare professionally competent people that will someday serve in a global community.

Submissions for the Sixth Annual International Photo Contest are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 28. Photos will be judged anonymously and prizes awarded for capturing the interaction of people, culture and/or scenery. The winners, plus nine honorable mentions, will have their photos featured in an International Photo 2010 calendar produced by the International Center.

“This is really a great opportunity for the UVU community to share its talents and international experiences through photography,” said Grant Skabelund, International Study Programs director.

The top three winners will receive gift certificates worth $125, $75 and $50 to Allen’s Camera in Orem. The winners, plus nine honorable mentions, will have their photo featured in an International Photo 2010 calendar produced by the International Center.

The limit is 10 entries per contestant. Images must be a minimum of eight inches at 300 DPI or 2,400 pixels for the smallest dimension. All entries must be submitted digitally to intlstudyprograms@uvu.edu. Entering the contest signifies an agreement to the International Center’s right to use each photo.

If you have any questions about the International Photo Contest, please contact the International Center (WB 147) at 801-863-8709 or intlstudyprograms@uvu.edu.
