DEADLINE TO ENTER IS THIS SUNDAY, November 3, MIDNIGHT!!!
Off-Campus Study is having it’s 11th annual Global Images Photo Contest for any Colby student who studied, worked, interned, or did research abroad during the 2018-2019 academic year. We encourage students to submit up to 2 of their favorite photos according to the rules and categories posted on our webpage http://www.colby.edu/offcampus/global-images-photo-contest-2/ . The categories for this year’s contest are:
Category 1 – Landscapes & Streetscapes: A landscape or streetscape that reveals or symbolizes your vision of the place you visited and provides a sense of the place in which it was taken. What about this image makes it meaningful for you?
Category 2 – Portraits: A portrait of a person or group of people you encountered abroad. How did this encounter occur or what was your relationship with this person(s)? How does this portrait capture or illustrate, for you, the way of life or cultural context of the people among whom you lived during your studies abroad? What does it tell you about the people of this country?
Category 3 – The Global Classroom: Select a photo which represents an academic aspect of your off-campus study experience, indicating the name and type of program on which you studied. The photo should:
• Show a learning experience you had either in the classroom, during a course-related excursion, a cultural event/activity, or while engaging with local culture
• Illustrate the process of learning (and how it may or may not be different than learning at Colby), or
• Depicts a product, outcome or achievement which is a result of your academic experience
Category 4 – The student experience: Look at the photos you took. Looking beyond the beautiful views or funny shots to select an image that illustrates or documents a personal or professional skill you developed while you were out seeing the world. What does your photo actually say about you and the skills you used or gained during your time away? Explain “what you see” in the photo at first glance (what the picture is about) versus “what you get” (what lesson(s) or skills your derived from the activity or experience.
It’s a great way for you to reflect on and share your experience with the Colby community! Prizes for the winning photos and they will be exhibited around the campus. REMEMBER TO submit following the rules and guidelines at http://www.colby.edu/offcampus/global-images-photo-contest-2/.
