The contest is open only to Lafayette students who studied abroad or are currently studying abroad during the 2014-15 academic year, including summer interim 2014, fall 2014, January interim 2015 and spring 2015.

The photographs will be judged by a committee comprised of faculty members, administrators and students, who will look in particular for photographs that:

  • demonstrate significant engagement or interaction between Lafayette students and the host culture
  • highlight the fusion of the academic and cultural aspects of the study abroad experience
  • capture a moment that offers a unique insight into the host culture
  • depict an intriguing landscape or cityscape that would motivate students to study abroad


  • You must have taken the photograph while enrolled in an official study-abroad program, though the photograph does not need to have been taken in your program’s host city
  • You may submit a maximum of two photographs
  • The files must be titled FirstName_LastName_1.jpg and FirstName_LastName_2.jpg (for example: Michael_Jordan_1.jpg)
  • Photographs should be submitted as in JPEG format (upload the highest quality / resolution you can)
  • The files you upload may not exceed a total of 20 MB (i.e. both files combined must be less than 20 MB).
  • The deadline for submission is 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 12th.

Winners will be announced in May; the winning photographs and honorable mentions will be displayed in a campus location TBD. The first three prizes include monetary awards as follows:
