Kennedy Center Photo Contest
Date & TimeFriday, 1, Oct 11:59 PM
Once again, every BYU student is eligible to submit photographs for this year’s unique photo competition. Because the pandemic affected all International Study Programs, travel abroad ceased for much of 2020 and 2021. Disruption and uncertainty can be useful elements in learning—including on study abroad and internship programs. Students should submit compelling photographs that document how they experienced the Kennedy Center’s mantra, Expand your world, during this past school year, even from home. The best photos will reveal global understanding and awareness. A $1,000 cash prize will be awarded for “Best in Show” and other cash amounts will be awarded to the runners-up and honorable mentions. Winners will be notified via email, and all participants will be invited to an awards ceremony. To learn more about the rules and how to submit your photos, click here. Deadline to submit photos is 1 October 2021.
