Every year, BYU students who participate in international study programs are invited to enter our annual photo contest. These photos should capture their experiences on BYU internship, study abroad, field school, or direct enrollment programs.
A panel of judges from across the Kennedy Center and elsewhere on campus evaluate the submissions' artistic and technical merit and how they demonstrate global understanding and awareness. Winners receive cash prizes of up to $1,000, and the winning photos are displayed in the main hallway of the Kennedy Center for the following year.
Nearly five hundred submissions were received for the 2022–2023 contest; the nine winners were announced in an awards ceremony in December 2023. Check out the top three below.
Honorable mentions are Bryan Barba, Nathaniel Hatch, Avery Keller, Elizabeth Lui, Tatiana Rich, and Saby Ruiz. You can see their photos on our gallery wall in the Herald R. Clark Building on BYU campus.
You can also view all of this year's winners, as well as winners from previous years, on the photo contest website. If you're a BYU student going on an international study program in the 2023–2024 academic year, you can also use that link to learn about how to enter next year's contest.
