2016-17 ACM Off-Campus Study Photo Contest

What experiences did students bring back after studying off-campus in 2016? Students who participated in an ACM study away program in the past year were eligible to participate in the 2016-17 ACM Off-Campus Study Photo Contest to share how they engaged with the people, culture, and places they experienced in 2016.

A panel of judges will select the winners of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place prizes. The Fans' Choice Award will be awarded to the photo that receives the most "likes" on the ACM Facebook page by Wednesday, March 1 at noon (CST).

All photo contest winners will be announced in early March 2017.


Judges are seeking creative, artistic, and thoughtfully-composed photos that transcend a typical tourist shot. Images that demonstrate the following will be favored:

  • Cross-cultural learning,
  • Students actively engaging with the local culture, and
  • Unique sights and experiences encountered during the off-campus study program.


Five cash prizes will be awarded. The awards are as follows:

1st place $350
2nd place $200
3rd place $150
4th place $100
Fans’ Choice $100
