Study Abroad Photo Contest Rules and Instructions

Any student who has participated in an NIU study abroad program is eligible to enter the photo contest!

Here are the details:

  1. E-mail your six (6) best photos from your study abroad experience to (please note that this is our e-mail inbox, so send them in separate e-mails if they are large files). Please use the phrase “Photo Contest” in the headline of your email. You may also drop off a CD or bring the files in on a flash drive if you prefer. DEADLINE: FRIDAY, August 31.

  2. Please include captions so we can identify what is being seen in the photo! You can do this in your e-mail, use them as your file names, or send us a separate Word file.

  3. The Study Abroad Office staff will choose your three (3) best photos to display at our Study Abroad Fair. We will print these photos and create a slide show so your work will be shown off to its best advantage!

  4. People attending the Fair will vote on your photos, and the three with the largest number of votes will be chosen as the winners! We will notify you by e-mail if you have won, so you can come in and pick up your prize.

  5. All photos entered become property of the NIU Study Abroad Office; by entering the contest, you agree that we may use your photos on our web site, print advertising, flyers, posters, handouts, PowerPoint presentations, or any other use we deem appropriate. The Study Abroad Office will identify the person who submitted any photo when it is used.

  6. If you have any questions, please call the NIU Study Abroad Office at 815-753-0700.

Thank You and Good Luck!
