Calling all students who studied off-campus in 2015-2016: submit your photos from your off-campus experience for the annual OCSE Photo Contest! This year we have four categories. Each category will have a $100 prize winner, and there will be a $200 PRIZE for the Best in Show category.

Students may submit up to five (5) photos across all categories.

My Self(ie)
Submit photos of yourself or other students on your program during your off-campus study. Special consideration given to photos highlighting students interacting with the local culture, with their homestay family, or for creative selfies.

My City
Capture the atmosphere of your program location or the place(s) you visited during your off-campus study. Photos can include landmarks, landscapes, scenes from daily life (such as bustling local markets or commuting crowds), local residents, etc. Special consideration given to photos taken in the city or town you lived in.

My Host Culture
Submit photos that best exhibit your city’s cultural celebrations or traditions, such as national holidays, performances, regional cuisine, routine family gatherings, or ceremonies.

My Studies
Show us what the “study” part of studying off-campus looks like! Photos could feature (but are not limited to) your school, action shots of fieldwork, long-term projects you completed, and you or other students volunteering or working in the local culture.

Best in Show
The best photograph, regardless of category, as determined by the judging committee.

DEADLINE: October 14, 2016
