2019 Contest Categories

  1. Spirit of FPA: Share a photo of an experience that captures the mission of our Faculty: to help build better society, better democracy, foster informed citizenship and address regional and global challenges.
  2. Living Local: We want to see your best photos that capture the culture, the places, and people in the country where you visited…and the ways you interacted with them.
  3. Friends and Fun: Share the photos that speak to friendship and the fun adventures you experienced. It could be a group photo, a portrait of a new friend or an action shot.
  4. Picture Perfect: Show us the beauty and splendor of the place you studied, worked or volunteered and send us your most amazing photo. Maybe it’s a gorgeous landscape, stunning sunset or spectacular view of the city.

The contest closes on September 13, 2019.
