Capstone International Academic Programs (CIAP) held its annual study abroad photo contest during International Education Week in November 2012. All students who participated on a study abroad program or were independently traveling outside of the U.S. were eligible to apply. Over 100 photos were submitted in four categories: Local Color, Landscape, UA Spirit, and Culture Shock. Winners were chosen by students and faculty, both in person and on the Capstone International Programs’ Facebook page. The top two photos from the various categories spanned six countries to places as diverse as Ghana, India, China, and Greece. The programs the students participated in were also diverse, ranging from a student teaching program in Ireland to a faculty-led program in Ghana. The goals of the photo contest are to give students an opportunity to display the remarkable photos they have taken abroad and to inspire students to include study abroad in their degree plans. Each first and second place category winner received a scholarship. CIAP was very impressed with the photo submissions this year, and we look forward to even more entries for next year. Interested students can inquire about the photo contest by visiting the study abroad office in 135 B.B. Comer. Submissions for the 2013 contest will be accepted starting in September.
