FAU Owls Abroad Photo Contest

Each year Education Abroad holds a photo competition and exhibit to celebrate and highlight the amazing moments captured by our students while studying abroad. Students are encouraged to submit their photos during our contest dates each Fall semester.

Photo Contest Winners


Education Abroad received over 80 photo submissions taken by FAU Education Abroad alumni who studied abroad during the 2016-2017 academic year!  Photographs show a glimpse of the international experiences which engaged nearly 300 FAU students who studied abroad in 23 countries across five continents last year. View all photographs at the Owls Abroad Photo Exhibit located in the Performing Arts Building (PA-51) from now until mid-January.

You can also cast your vote for the Community Choice Award on the FAU Owls Abroad Photo Contest Facebook (FAU Education Abroad) album by liking your favorite photo submissions. The photo with the most likes on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 4 pm, will be the Community Choice Award winner!


2017 Photo Contest Details

3:00 PM, Friday, October 20, 2017. (Late submissions will not be accepted).

The Photo Contest is open to FAU degree-seeking students who participated in an approved short or long-term study abroad or internship abroad program during the 2016-2017 academic year (fall 2016, spring 2017, or summer 2017).

Photo submissions must be original works of art taken during official program dates.  Submissions should be high resolutions photos in black and white or color.  Only standard photos shapes and sizes will be considered (square or panoramic photo layout submissions will NOT be accepted due to printing requirements.)  Students may submit two original works; submissions which have been digitally altered will not be accepted.  

Each entrant must complete an entry form for each photo submission and may submit up to 2 high resolution photos.  (Photos submitted with low resolution will not be printed or accepted due to print quality.)  Photo submissions can either be emailed to: oipphotos@yahoo.com as a JPEG (.jpg) file at the original photo size, or photo submissions can be saved on a CD and submitted to the Education Abroad office in GS 212Q on the Boca Raton campus.

All photos will be evaluated by a team of judges selected from the FAU community of faculty and staff.  Each photo is judged on its own merit. If the number of photo submissions exceeds the exhibit display space, a preliminary vetting process by photo judges will decide photos for display and final competition. Judges will complete final evaluation of photos on display in the exhibit. Judges decisions are final.

Eligible photo submissions will be shared in a Community Choice Award album on the FAU Education Abroad Facebook page the week of November 6, 2017. The photo with the most likes on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 4 pm, will be the Community Choice Award winner.

There will be four (4) prize winners:  1st Prize, 2nd Prize, and 3rd Prize as judged during the contest exhibit and then a Community Choice Award given based off the photo with the most likes within the Facebook album.
