The Project

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” ― W.B. Yeats
This project is about you, the traveler and observer, and the way that you perceive the world around you. As your senses sharpen, share your vision and perception of our changing world in the form of a photograph.

As you think about your photography and the theme for our exhibit, The World Through My Eyes, ask yourself: What is my role in the changing world around me? This exhibit is all about you - the student, the photographer, the traveler, the global changer - and how you view our world.

Requirements

The deadline for submitting your photos is Friday, April 10, 2015 at 12pm. Any photos submitted after this deadline will not be displayed and will not be considered for an award. If you submit a photo of anything that is deemed inappropriate for the contest, it will not be displayed and will not be considered for an award. The CIE reserves the right to remove your photo from the contest at any time without prior notice.

If you are using digital photography please email your selected photo to Rachel.Walker@nau.edu. If you wish to print your own photo please make sure it is an 8”x 10” photo and bring three prints to the Center for International Education, attention Rachel Walker. If you are using film photography you are welcome to handle the development yourself, again make sure it is an 8”x 10” photo and that three copies are provided. We are able to print photos but need to have enough time to process them and prepare them for display so please try to submit your photo as soon as possible.

The Award

The CIE will be giving a scholarship award worth $150 to the winner of The World Through My Eyes photo contest. The winner will be announced at the International Idol event on April 17, 2015. Please note that if you have any outstanding charges on your student account at the time you receive the award, the award money will automatically be applied to those charges. If you do not have a charge on your account, the award will stay on your account until you apply it to your tuition, housing or other charges.
