Photograph contest: Capturing the Experience
We’re looking for your photographs to capture the study abroad experience: what you’ve learned, crucial experiences, breakthroughs, obstacles, all the lessons and experiences you’ll bring back with you. The contest is open to students from any of the institutions participating in the ‘Bringing the Learning Home’ project.
How to enter: Send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email, permanent address and institution (Murdoch, Macquarie or UOW).
Entries accepted until 29 February 2012; winners will be announced in March 2012. You can submit more than one entry.
Make sure to include at least one sentence explaining the photo or describing why the photo is important to you. Remember, this is not just a photo contest: what you write, what you’ve experienced, are as important as the quality of the image. An image that isn’t necessarily artistically pretty can certainly win a prize if the experience is particularly compelling. It’s not the quality of the image but the quality of the experience that matters most.
Three prizes will be awarded at each institution: Macquarie University, Murdoch University, and the University of Wollongong. First prize will be $300; second prize $150; third prize $50.
We will be trying to use the images in publications about improving study abroad experience, so don’t be surprised if we ask to publish your photo.
