International Photo Contest

At Utah Valley University 

For the past 14 years, The Office for Global Engagement, has hosted the Annual International Photo Contest where UVU faculty, staff, and students, that have participated in a study abroad program that year, can submit up to three photos that were taken abroad. Every year we are more and more impressed by the submissions that we receive. From Scotland’s historic castles, Machu Picchu in Peru and global economic powerhouse that is China; we admire every photo and find it fascinating to see what others experience abroad. 

After all photos are submitted, judging committee composed of UVU photography faculty convenes to determine the top 12 photos. These 12 photos are used to create the annual International Photo Calendar. Proceeds from the calendar support international opportunities for UVU students. The top 12 photographers receive a complimentary calendar as well as a certificate. The top 3 photographers each receive a gift card to the UVU Bookstore. 

Winning photographs are unveiled every November and remain on display in The Office for Global Engagement for one calendar year. 

If you embark on an international trip during the 2017-2018 academic year, don’t forget to take photos of all the wonderful things you experience. By submitting them, you could be one of our next 12 winners for the upcoming year.
