International Photo Exhibition
Dates and Times
10 am – 3 pm, Oct. 29-Nov.2, 2012
North Foyer, Campus Center
The contest will accept photographs taken by current Ithaca College students while studying abroad, as well as photographs taken by international students in their home countries, while studying abroad, or in the US. There are two main categories of the contest: People and Places, as well as an additional special category: Sports (see below). The photos must be original and taken by the students submitting them for the contest. We can accept only one entry per category per student for the contest; please contact International Programs if you would like to display more photos. Photos must be submitted “on paper,” we cannot display electronic submissions. We prefer photos which are 5x7 or 8x10, but we will do our best to display your photo, so please submit it.
The entries must be submitted to the Office of International Programs, 214-2 CHS by 5 pm on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. When turning in the photo, please complete the Contest Submission Form (one for each photo), so we know who you are and we have information about your entry for the contest. We cannot process photos without a completed Contest Submission Form.
The contest entries will be judged by popular vote: all visitors to the International Education Photo Exhibit will be invited to submit their vote for the best photo in each of the categories of the contest. Votes will be received until the closing of the Exhibition at 3 pm on November 2. Only voting ballots which are completely filled out will be considered for the judging. Multiple entries will be removed. First ($100), Second ($50), and Third ($25) prizes will be awarded in each of the three categories (People, Places, and Sports). In addition to the popular vote, all photos in the exhibit will be considered for the Photo Merit Awards. A professor from the Department of Cinema, Photography, and Media Arts will review all photos in the exhibit and will select the best photos.
Special photo contest category: Sports
We want to see (and share with the campus community) your best sports photo – however you would like to define the term “sports.” Maybe that is an image of a professional athlete winning at an international event, or a shot of a school team in action; maybe it is the audience cheering on; or kids kicking a ball in the park. And let’s not forget the mind sports, those competitive but non-physical activities that you can witness all over the world (even the International Olympic Committee recognizes chess and bridge as bona fide sports). So look through your photos and please submit an entry! If you have further questions, please contact the OIP at 4-3306 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
