Photo Contest

Calling all World Travelers and Photographers!

As the Office of International Programs becomes the Center for Global Engagement, we are happy to announce the 2017 International Week theme, “Global Engagement: Out of Many, One” along with the 17th annual I-Week Photo Contest.  Though we are many and represent immense diversity that we should celebrate, our hope for the future lies in our ability to connect with one another and collaborate. Global engagement, after all, happens right here in our own communities, as well as abroad.  Since 2000, members of the JMU community have submitted photographs documenting their travels around the globe.

Current students, faculty, staff and official affiliates of JMU are encouraged to submit their best photos to exemplify this year’s theme in the following four categories: 

  1. People
  2. Nature
  3. Architecture
  4. Miscellaneous

The deadline for submission of photos is Friday, September 8, 2017 at 11:00 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time).
