Photo & Writing Contests
INTERNATIONAL PHOTO CONTEST 2013
Deadline: September 6th, 2013
Share your travel experiences by entering our annual International Photo Contest! Temple students may submit photos of their travel and/or study abroad experiences from outside of the United States.
There are two categories for the contest: Owls Abroad and Artistic Vision. We are looking for unique images that capture the moment and tell a story. Impress us with photos of you or your friends abroad, where you lived, or what you saw or experienced. Artistic Vision photos will be judged by a faculty/staff panel; winners will be announced and exhibited at the Study Abroad Alumni Reception. Entries to the Owls Abroad category will be on display for student judging during the Reception.
Winners from both categories will also be exhibited during the Global Temple Conference and displayed in the Education Abroad office. Prizes will be awarded.
Put yourself in the picture! Show us your best shots of you or your peers abroad, a photo that will make others want to study abroad; a shot that makes a statement about your experience or shows you interacting with the host culture.
This category is designed for photos of amazing places, landscapes, landmarks, people, and culture. Share with us your international adventure!

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL WRITING CONTEST 2012
Deadline: April 5, 2013
Share your travel-inspired writing by entering our annual Undergraduate Travel Writing Contest! There are two categories from which to choose: 1) Travel Essay and 2) Short Fiction. The theme for both categories is International Insights. Any undergraduate can submit a short story or essay-- your entry should be inspired by an international experience that has helped you gain some insight about another country or culture, about your own country or culture, or about international travel in general. Ideal submissions will expose something specific and resonant about the country you visited, placing it within the context of your experience as a student abroad.
Prizes include Barnes and Noble gift cards of up to $100, and winning pieces will be published here on our website and in our study abroad magazine, Earthtones.
