Held each year, the contest is open to all Chazen international travel programs and participants. Photos will be used for Chazen promotional materials or on our website.
The top three photos will receive $300 awards; other finalists in the top 10 will receive gift cards to Amazon.
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.
- Photos must have been taken as part of a Chazen international travel program (Study Tour, Global Immersion Program class or Chazen block week class)
- Decisions are final.
