Photo Contest

Humans are storytellers and those who participate in Georgia Tech study abroad programs or come from another country to study at GT are no different. Georgia Tech offers life-changing international opportunities-whether that's studying here in Atlanta, studying abroad, researching, or interning abroad. The Office of International Education (OIE) provides a platform for students to share those stories through the annual Photo Contest. Submissions are open to students that have been abroad this past academic year (Fall 2022 - Summer 2023).

We are now accepting applications! The winners will be showcased on November 16th, 2023 at the Photo Contest Reception.

Contest Categories:

  1. Highlight Photo:
    • These photos represent the 'highlight' of your time abroad, typically a cultural experience or memorable moment.
  2. Best Landscape Photo:
    • These photos highlight natural beauty found in landscapes around the world.
  3. Best Cityscape Photo:
    • These photos highlight the charm and creativity of man-made metropolitan environments abroad.
