International Student Photo Contest Submissions due October 18

The photo contest is open to any full-time University of Iowa student holding a non-immigrant F-1 or J-1 student visa. Applicants may submit up to two photographs overall (either two in one category or one in each). We will select one winning photo from each category and a third overall Grand Prize winner. All photos must have been taken by the entrant in the U.S. Please read the following category descriptions closely to determine where your photo submissions belong:

CATEGORY 1: Show us your Hawkeye Spirit

As the title implies, we are looking for photos in this category that depict you or another international student showing off your love of the University of Iowa. All photos in this category must include at least one UI international student.

CATEGORY 2: Exploring local cultures and traditions

What local cultures and traditions have you experienced since coming to Iowa? Feel free to get creative with this category as you show us how you’ve interacted with new cultural traditions in the United States.

NOTE: The use of copyrighted material not owned by the photographer or extensive use of Photoshop (e.g. combining different photographs into one composite image) will be grounds for immediate disqualification. No panoramic photos will be accepted.

Prize amounts:

Overall grand prize: $150
First prize, Show us your Hawkeye Spirit: $100
First prize, Exploring local cultures and traditions: $100

Entrants and winners will be notified via email and a public announcement will be made. Questions about this process or the contest in general can be sent to ip-communications@uiowa.edu. Prizes are awarded via the student’s UBill.
