(Sept. 20, 2013) -- UTSA students, faculty and staff who have been abroad have the chance to compete in the third annual UTSA International Photo Competition. The submission deadline is noon, Tuesday, Oct. 1.
The top 10 student-submitted images and top three faculty- or staff-submitted images will be displayed at UTSA's Gallery 23 in the University Center from Nov. 11 to Jan. 24. There will be a opening celebration Nov. 11 as a part of the kickoff of International Education Week. Prizes will be awarded in the contest.
International Education Week began in 2000, and today it is celebrated in more than 100 countries. It gives domestic students an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This year's celebration will be Nov. 12-16.
"Last year, we had more than 100 entries in the competition," said Sherrie Voss Matthews, international media and marketing coordinator for the UTSA Office of International Programs. "It was an amazingly difficult choice for the panel of judges to pick just one winner. We would like to see as many, if not more entries this year."
There are more detailed technical specifications for entries this year because the show is in Gallery 23, which has limited space. Images must be printable in a large format, must be printable as an 11-by-14-inch image (2,100 by 1,650 pixels) and must be 10 to 12 megabytes in size.
