The Chazen Institute will choose the top 10 photos and post them on the Chazen Institute Facebook page for a week to be voted on. The winning photos will be the ones receiving the most “likes” on our page. We will notify students when the photos have been posted and that the voting is open.
Photography for the Chazen Institute photo contest should express the mission and capture the vitality of the Institute and its initiatives. To this end, preference will be given to photos with a journalistic approach that seek to:
- Capture learning and international business in action; including business interactions, Lectures in the field, development initiatives in action, the positive impact of business on local people and families;
- Avoid touristy set ups (such as groups of students smiling in front of a landmark or cultural icon;
- Avoid too much skin (while we understand some locales may be visited during hot season, we are unable to use photographs of students in revealing clothing such as tank tops, shorts, mini-skirts, and bathing suits);
- Photograph in good light, such as mornings and late afternoon, or use a flash when natural light is poor.
