Education Abroad Photo Contest
Send us your photos! We invite all education abroad participants to submit no more than two of their best digital photos to the Center for Global Education. Entries will be divided into two categories, People and Places, giving more students the opportunity to win! First, second, and third place winners in both categories will be awarded Downtown Naperville Gift Certificates in the amount of $40, $20 and $15 respectively. Winning photos will be displayed in the Boilerhouse on the North Central campus!

Eligibility & Entry Requirements
Submit up to 2 digital photos (one for each category People and Places) to Rachel Birkley (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In photo submission email, please include your name, category for each submission, photo title(s), and where and when each photo was taken.
Photographs must have been taken by you, the entrant.
Open to all North Central College students who studied abroad sometime during the previous academic year.
Entries will be judged by a committee of representatives from the NCC administration.
The committee seeks photos that are representative of students' international experience.
Entries will be divided into two categories, increasing your odds of winning.
People: photos will be judged on quality and content, with special consideration given to images that depict student interaction with the host culture, students in the academic environment, local culture, and history.
Places: photos will be judged based on the best use of architectural, landscape, cityscape, or surrounding environmental elements of the place studied in or visited during the experience, with special consideration given to images depicting students.
