Attention Texans!

Did you study abroad during 2017, have the time of your life, and have a lot of great pictures to share with the Tarleton community? This is the perfect opportunity to share your experiences abroad with other Tarleton students, faculty, and staff! 

Join the Study Abroad Photography Contest taking place on Thursday, September 28, 2016 in the Thompson Student Center Ballrooms. Don't miss out on this excellent opportunity to display your photographs from your study abroad experience!


Now Open - Deadline: Friday, September 22, 2016

International Programs will have its annual Study Abroad Photography Contest for students who went abroad during the Spring and Summer 2017 semesters. Studying abroad goes well beyond the tourist experience and involves a deeper understanding of the host country, values, and culture. We encourage you to submit photographs with a short description that reflects your new knowledge in the following areas:

  • Culture, customs, and traditions
  • Nature
  • City Landscapes
  • Student Life Abroad

Eligibility Requirements

  • Participants must be a Tarleton State University student (Tarleton recent graduates are also eligible) and must have enrolled in a study abroad program or independent study abroad experience in either the Spring or Summer 2017 semesters.
  • Photos must be titled and submitted digitally in high resolution.
  • Participants may submit as many photographs as desired. However, they must include a brief description and category for each submission.
  • Participants agree to release photos to International Programs to use in promotions and publications as deemed appropriate by the office.

Winners will receive prizes and their photos will be displayed at the International Office. Winners will be announced on September 29 during the Study Abroad Fair.

The top three winning photos will compete for a popular vote and special recognition on Tarleton State University's official Facebook and Instagram accounts.
