UCLA International Institute, November 13, 2017 — Each year, UCLA study abroad students share what it’s like to live and learn in another country through travel photography and short films.
The annual Study Abroad Photography & Short Film Contest showcases the top study abroad photos and films submitted by UCLA students who have recently returned to campus or visiting international students at UCLA from abroad. This year the contest has been expanded to include short films.
The campus is invited to vote online or at the exhibit from Monday, Nov. 13, through Friday, Nov. 17, to select three of the best study abroad photos (see photo slider above) and the top short film of 2017 (see links below). The grand prize for photography is a $200 ASUCLA Store gift certificate, and the grand prize for film is a $400 ASUCLA Store gift certificate.
