The photo contest will be open to Baylor University undergraduates and graduates studying abroad during the 2021–2022 academic year. Participants in Baylor study abroad programs or affiliate/provider programs are welcome. For purposes of this competition, “study abroad” may include international internships. It does not, however, include vacation travel abroad other than interim travel as part of a study abroad program.

All photos will be featured on the @bearsabroad Instagram as well as other marketing materials throughout the academic year. All student winners will also be invited to do an insta-takeover on the @bearsabroad Instagram featuring their study abroad experience.
You must be a current Baylor Student to win the Amazon Gift Card Prize. If you have already graduated please feel free to submit your photos but you will not be eligible for the prizes.
What types of photos can be submitted?
New Categories for 2022:
Still Photography – Art, Architecture, Cityscape, and Landscape photos. Any photos depicting everyday life in your host country.
Bears Abroad Community – Pictures of you on your study abroad with your professors, classmates, and new friends from your host country!
Baylor Strong – Fling your Green and Gold afar! Have a photo of you doing a Sic Em', a picture with a bear statue, a picture with a live bear? Picture of you wearing Baylor swag? You get the idea. Send us your photos that highlight Baylor abroad.
How many photos can I submit?
A total of 3 photos, 1 for each category (see above). These photos must have been taken at some point during the study abroad program.
Do I have to submit 3 photos?
No, you don’t have to submit for each category (though we suggest you do!). But you cannot submit more than a single photo in any category.
The only subject matter restriction is that your photo or photos capture an experience or observation abroad, not necessarily limited to your program location. (A student studying in the Netherlands, for example, could submit a photo taken in Switzerland during a trip.) . We encourage photographs that capture the heart of your experience.
How do I submit my entries?
All forms need to be submitted by September 1st, 2022. Photos must be attached in JPEG form.
All submissions become the property of the Center for Global Engagement, which will enjoy full rights of display and circulation (with credit to the photographer). If you submit a photograph it is understood that you have given us this right.
We look forward to receiving your photos! Please direct any further questions to email@example.com.
