Study Abroad Photo Contest 2022

Moody Global

Have you studied abroad? Submit your photos for a chance to win!

You’ve been abroad, you’ve had a life-changing experience, seen some amazing things, and took some great pictures to remember it. We want to show off those photos to the Moody College Family! We are having a photo contest and will award prizes as outlined below.  

The deadline for submission is Sunday, November 6th at 5:00 p.m. Winners will be picked in the subsequent weeks and winning photos will be shared with the Moody College community. We look forward to seeing your photos and celebrating your time abroad!

The Process

  • Submit up to 3 photos (MUST be original photos taken by the student) using the Google form link.  Each submission will require its own form.
  • A committee of Moody College faculty and staff will review the submissions and choose a 1st and 2nd place winners as well as two honorable mentions who will receive scholarship prizes of $200, $100, and $50 respectively.

What we’re looking for

  • Photos that capture the study abroad experience in a photojournalistic light.  Photos in this category can include action and still life photos. The subject of these photos can be anything, as long as they capture a journalistic style story.
  • Photos that help market the study abroad experience. This could be a photo that captures a normal day in a foreign country, or an extraordinary, once in a lifetime moment, but they should be appropriate for use in marketing materials and social media.

Contest Rules

  • Photos must be your original work.
  • Photos must be high quality resolution, at least 2 MB and up.
  • Photos must have been taken while abroad on an education abroad program anytime from Fall 2021 to Summer 2022.

By submitting photos to the contest, participants are agreeing to grant the Moody College of Communication license for use of the photographs in displays related to the contest and in the Moody College of Communication’s printed and electronic publications. Photos may be modified, retouched, and used for promotional purposes, such as on the Moody College website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, and in brochures, fliers, or posters. By agreeing to these terms, entrants are releasing all submitted photos from any liability that may arise from the use of the images.
