The Center for Global Education's (CGE) 5th Annual Study Abroad Photo Contest is currently accepting submissions, and any Mason student, faculty, staff or alumnus who's studied abroad through CGE in the last year is eligible to submit!
To successfully submit your photos, follow these two simple steps by Friday, August 17, 2012:
1) EMAIL YOUR TWO BEST PHOTOS to [log in to unmask].
The subject line should say "Photo Contest Submission" and the body should include your name and the name of the program on which you took the photographs. Like we covered during the pre-departure orientations in May and last December, photos containing color, creativity, and you wearing Mason/CGE gear in an iconic place make for great study abroad photos! You can also share your photos with CGE on facebook to get friends excited about the contest!
2) BRING 8x10 HARD COPIES of the same two best photos with the official entry form to CGE's office in the Johnson Center, Room 235 or snail mail them to:
We'll install the contest on Sunday, August 26 so we absolutely must receive hard copies of your photos by then. We recommend you print your hard copies at this local FedEx Office Print & Ship Center across the street from campus in the University Mall, where if you mention you're a Mason student you should receive a discount:

This year's winners will receive their prizes and be officially recognized by the Center for Global Education (CGE) at the CGE Pre-Departure Orientation on December 8, 2012. Past winners have had their photos featured and published online, and they've received gift certificates and Mason gear (sweatshirts, blankets, etc.) in return. *The top prizes for this contest will be even BIGGER than last year's, so submit your photos and stay tuned!*
Good luck, and be sure to join us at the PHOTO CONTEST KICKOFF after the first day of class!
