The photo exhibit will be on display in the S.E. Wimberly Library - First Floor West in Boca Raton starting November 7, 2016. Several prizes will be awarded based on a review by a panel of judges.
The three categories are:
STUDENTS ABROAD: Photos must depict an image of students in a setting indicative of the abroad location, or interacting with local populations, or aspects of the study abroad experience.
PEOPLE OF THE HOST COUNTRY: Photos should capture images of people in the host country visited.
PLACES ABROAD: Photos should be of a landmark or a landscape scene of your abroad location.
How We Judge:
All photos will be evaluated by a team of judges selected from the FAU community of faculty, staff and student leaders (OIP staff do not judge photos). Each photo is judged on its own merit. If the number of submissions exceeds the display space in the exhibit, a subset of the judges’ panel will do a preliminary vetting to decide the semi-finalists for display and the final competition. The full judges’ panel will review the photos on display in the exhibit to choose the award winners. Judges decisions are final. There may be multiple winning photos from the same photographer. However, only one prize is awarded to each winning contestant.
Nine (9) winning entries will be selected based on the best quality photographs in the three categories.
3 First Prizes of $100.00 (one in each category)
3 Second Prizes of $50.00 (one in each category)
3 Third Prizes of $25.00 (one in each category)
