Photos may represent any world region. There is no restriction on the time period in which the photograph was taken. Entries will be judged on artistic merit and context. Special consideration will be given to images that are distinctive and embrace new perspectives.

Submission Deadline: September 30, 2014

We will select first, second, and third place winners, as well as a Chancellor’s Choice award. Honorable mentions will be awarded for photos that incorporate the following themes:

· Global Perspectives within the U.S.
· Learning Moment
· Movement
· Nature’s Beauty
· A New Take on an old Landmark
· School Spirit

Every individual that enters will have a photograph displayed in the FedEx Global Education Center beginning in late February 2015. CGI will consider submitted photos for publication in its annual calendar, and Global Relations, International Student and Scholar Services and Study Abroad will use select images for publication in reports, web pages, brochures and other promotional materials.

This competition is an excellent opportunity to showcase Carolina’s diverse global activity, educational opportunities, research and service work. We look forward to your submissions!
