About the Contest
The International Photo Contest is held annually in conjunction with International Education Week (November 6- 10, 2023).
Show off your Hawkeye spirit and share your unique international experiences (both on campus and abroad). Whether it’s flying the Hawkeye flag from the top of the Swiss Alps, marching in the homecoming parade as an international student, or showcasing a summer internship in South Africa, we'd love to see it!
Winning photographs will be showcased across campus during International Education Week as well as featured in an Iowa Now article.
All current University of Iowa students (domestic and international) are invited to submit photos to our 2023 International Photo Contest.
Submit your photo via our online webform
