Welcome to the Student Opportunities Page!

If so, now is the time to enter your best photos from the experience in the 10th annual SDSU International Photo Contest, taking place during Family Weekend on October 7 & 8, 2016.


 In conjunction with the 2016-17 SDSU Common Experience, we invite you to submit a photo from your time abroad that embodies the following theme: 


Experience Movement: 

Images capturing movement within everyday life of your host culture, in work, play, ceremony, and surroundings; either subtle or dynamic.


Along with your photo you must submit a narrative of 50 words or less that connects your photo to the contest theme, and explains why the image holds meaning for you.


Deadline for Submission

Monday September 26, 2016, by 4:00pm PST



A university-wide judging panel will evaluate all eligible photo submissions that exmplify this year's contest theme. Cash prizes will be awarded.


Participant Eligibility

To enter, you must be a current SDSU student and your photo must have been taken BY YOU as an SDSU student during an SDSU interational experience.  This includes all faculty-led programs, SDSU exchange programs, ISEP programs, and independent programs.  SDSU students who participated in foreign internship, volunteer, or work abroad programs are also eligible.  Degree-seeking international students may also submit entries from their experience abroad at SDSU.  SDSU employees are not eligible.  Students must submit both the photo and the narrative prior to the deadline.
