Photo Contest


Photo Contest Rules:

Every semester the BBA IP office holds a photo contest of which we invite students who have returned from a semester or year abroad to submit photos. UT students and McCombs Faculty/Staff are invited to vote for the winner of the photo contest. Stay tuned for our next International photo competition.

1. Two contest cycles per academic year:

  • Fall students are one cycle
  • Spring and summer students are grouped as one cycle

2. One entry per student, per cycle:

  • Example 1: Fall 2012 student goes to Copenhagen – may submit one entry
  • Example 2: Fall 2012 through spring 2013 student goes to Paris – may submit two entries
  • Example 3: Fall 2012 through spring 2013 student goes to Vienna then Otago – may submit two entries
  • Example 4: Summer 2012 student goes to BI Norway – may submit one entry

3. If needed, photo submissions will be narrowed down to 32 semi-finalist entries by the BBA International Programs staff. The top 32 submissions will be featured on our Photo Contest website, and all entries will be visible on our Flickr account.

4. All photo contest entries must be submitted to the BBA International Programs’ Flickr  account. Each semester’s photo contest will have a separate folder set up for students to submit their photos and caption information. Returning BBA exchange students will be notified of the username and password to access and upload to the Flickr account.

5. Must be an original photo taken by the student and not edited using any software. We would like real pictures, please!
