International Eye Photo Contest
The annual International Eye Photo Contest is a great opportunity for Princeton students to share their experiences abroad with fellow returnees and the greater campus community.
The contest is sponsored by the Office of International Programs in collaboration with Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, the Program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, and the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures.
All Princeton undergraduates who have studied, worked, volunteered, or done research abroad in the past year (whether summer or semester) are eligible and may submit a total of four (4) photos.
Check back in September 2017 for more details.
Abstraction: No rules! Submit photos that capture your study abroad experience in a creative and abstract way.
Architecture/Cityscape: Share photos that depict any aspect of city life from your time abroad – from street vendors to skylines!
Landscape/Nature: The world is a beautiful place! Submit photos of plants, animals, landscapes, or any other natural wonders from your international experience.
People: Interacting with new people is one of the most rewarding things about being abroad. Submitted photos can be portraits or candid shots of local people in your host country.
