Center for Global Initiatives Global Photo Contest

The Center for Global Initiatives is pleased to announce our call for entries to the 11th Annual Global Photography Contest. This is an amateur photography competition that is open to all students, faculty, alumni and staff of UNC-Chapel Hill. The submission deadline is Sept. 10, 2010.

The main requirement is that the photograph(s) represents a global or cross-cultural experience. Photographs must be submitted in a digital format (i.e.-35mm prints should be scanned and sent as digital files). Photographs from all types of cameras (35 mm, digital, instant) will be accepted. We prefer submissions at 300 dpi in either jpg or tiff format but lower resolutions will be accepted (the higher the resolution-the better the print!). When in doubt send the original source file, unaltered.

Judging Criteria:
Entries will be judged on ability to represent a cross-cultural/global experience and on artistic merit. A brief description/essay must accompany each image describing the photo and or the circumstances that brought you to the location of the photo.

Entry Period:
May 26, 2010 through September 10, 2010

Entries must be the original work of the entrant, and must be created exclusively by the entrant.

How to Enter:
Complete and submit the online Entry Form (you may submit up to three photos via one entry form). The submission period runs between May 26, 2010 and September 10, 2010.

Winning photos may be displayed either in print at an exhibit in the Global Education Center and/or online galleries. Winning entries may also be featured in our annual calendar published by the Center. Entries may be featured in various university publications and websites. Prizes include poster print enlargements and more TBA!
