Picture The World Photo Contest

Have you gone abroad on a field school, exchange, co-op, study abroad or other UVic international activity?  Submit your best photos from your international experience. Photos must include people. Win $150 first prize or $100 second prize!

We encourage photo submissions that capture you studying outside of the classroom (in museums, cafes, historical sites, etc.), participating in culturally diverse traditions, and other hands-on and experiential learning opportunities. Extra points for non-touristy photos and photos that have people in them!
