Share Your Study Abroad Journey
- VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE PHOTO!
West Liberty Study Abroad runs three contests that encourage students to share their stories and show their skills. Submissions are due on October 31, 2019.
Photography fuses art and journalism. In the best cases it not only provides us with a record of what we have seen, it helps us to see more deeply and with greater feeling. The annual Study Abroad Photo Contest provides you with an opportunity to combine an adventure abroad with serious picture-taking, and it provides a forum for formal recognition of your artistry.
The photo contest will be open to West Liberty University undergraduates studying abroad during the 2018-19 academic year. For purposes of the contest, the academic year comprises three semesters, beginning with fall semester 2018 and ending with summer semester 2019. Participants from both West Liberty-sponsored programs and non-West Liberty programs are welcome, as are students whose study or work abroad is funded by one of the WLU’s travel grants. For purposes of this competition, “study abroad” may include international internships or employment. It does not, however, include vacation travel abroad other than interim travel as part of a study abroad program.
- First Prize
- Second Prize
- Study Abroad also selects a variable number of honorable mentions. The winners will be announced by late-fall semester.
