Study Abroad to Sponsor Photo and Video Contests

The Center for International Education and Study Abroad is inviting all students who have studied abroad in the past year to enter its Photo and Video Contest.

Photo Contest Criteria
The categories are: Academics, Student Life, Landscape, Community Service and Truman Abroad (this is a picture of the student abroad, wearing a Truman shirt.) In order to be eligible to win prizes, submit at least one photo for any category or a maximum of three photos for each category per student. Include when the photo was taken, where it was taken, who is in it and which category.

Video Contest Criteria
Videos can be up to three minutes long. The top three videos that best capture the relationship of the local culture of the destination of the learning experience abroad will receive awards. Any aspect of a student’s time abroad may be considered as the subject matter, with the following ideas encouraged for use: the classroom, history, community, local customs, food and world issues. Students can be as creative as possible and use any combination of audio/visual multimedia, but all in good taste and suitable for distribution. The best videos should artfully express what was experienced abroad and what it meant to the individual. In addition, include a brief description of the video and what was learned from the experience abroad.

All photos and videos must be emailed to with the entrant’s name and study abroad destination by Oct. 31 with the subject line “Photo Contest” or “Video Contest.”

All submissions will be posted on the Study Abroad Facebook page. Comments and likes will be considered when deciding the winners who best promote and express their study abroad experience for each category. Voting will begin Nov. 16 and end Nov. 20. The best photo from each category and the top three videos will be announced after International Education Week.
