Submissions Sought For International Programs Photo Contest

University of Iowa international students and study abroad participants are invited to submit impressions of their time abroad to the UI International Programs fourth annual photo contest, "Show Us the World Through Your Eyes." The deadline for submissions is Friday, Oct. 21. The contest is held in conjunction with International Education Week Nov. 14 to 18.

The contest is open to all UI study abroad returnees and international students. It is held to promote international awareness and understanding through pictorial representations. There are two submission categories: international students' views of the United States, and U.S. study abroad participants impressions of other countries where they have studied.

To participate in the contest, students need to submit electronic and hard copies of their photos along with a completed entry form and signed waiver to the Office for Study Abroad. High-resolution images should be e-mailed to study-abroad@uiowa.edu and 8-by-10-inch prints, which are used for reproduction purposes, should be dropped off at 28 International Center. Entry forms and waivers are available at http://www.uiowa.edu/~intl. Each entrant may submit up to two photos.

A reception will be held to honor the winners and runners-up for each category of the photo contest as well as to honor the winners of an essay contest organized by the UI Office of International Students and Scholars. The reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11 at the UI Blank Honors Center, 221 N. Clinton St in Iowa City. Award-winning photos will be displayed at this venue throughout the month of November.
