The submission period is now open for the 18th annual Carolina Global Photography Competition. This amateur competition is open to all students, faculty, alumni and staff of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and it showcases Carolina’s global activity, educational opportunities, research and service work. The competition closes September 15, 2017.
Each photographer may submit up to three photos. Photos may represent any world region and there is no restriction on the period in which the photograph was taken. Entries will be judged on artistic merit and context. Special consideration will be given to images that are distinctive and embrace new perspectives.
Prizes include a GoPro HERO Action Camera, gift certificates to local restaurants and 20×30 poster prints of image submissions.
Grand prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third place winners.
A Chancellor’s Choice will be awarded to a photo the Chancellor finds globally relevant and distinctive.
Regional spotlights will be selected by area studies centers and departmental units housed in the FedEx Global Education Center. Each unit will choose a photo representing their mission, vision, academic focus and/or world area.
Thematic spotlights will be awarded for photos that incorporate various themes prioritized by the competition committee.
