Preview Photo & Video Contest

Win a $500 Travel Voucher with Your Preview Photos

As you face the impossible task of sorting through your iCloud when you return from Preview, we hope you’ll share your favorite (and in-focus) moments with our 2019 Preview Photo and Video Contest. Here are a few tips for winning a $500 Grand Prize Travel Voucher and other prizes:
 

Enter pictures of landmarks unless you or your classmates are prominently featured. We want to see you exploring your Preview destination. Big Ben, believe it or not, is already on Google.

Don't:

Submit high-quality photos (minimum resolution: 1200x1800 or 2MB). DSLR cameras encouraged, Android users warned.

Do:

Send us the same subject from different angles. Be selective with your submissions. Your friends will gladly watch a slideshow with 20 versions of the Eiffel Tower, but save the best for us.

Don't:

Capture the community, culture, natural beauty, and spirit of your host country. If we have to guess where in the world you are, you'll be lost.

Do:

Submit photos of cats, dogs, flowers— we have those here. And we can’t believe we have to say this, but no shots of your feet.

Don't:

Make the world your classroom. Your education abroad is not confined by four walls— show us where and how you learned.

Do:

Forget that we accept video and panoramic photo submissions, too. Though we’d appreciate a Scorsese-level production, we’re looking for interesting content and strong visuals. And a PG rating. (Okay, PG-13.)

Don't:

Have fun! Be creative, think outside the box, excite us. We live vicariously through your cool selves.

How to Enter

Upload up to ten submissions using the Preview Contest Submission Form by 5 p.m. by Friday, March 29. Each photo entry should include a brief description (one to two sentences) detailing where you are, what you're doing, and who you're with.

Images must be high-resolution (at least 2MB) and can be lightly modified (color corrected, cropped). Entries that are visibly Photoshopped will not be considered.

Prizes

Three grand prize winners, announced at Global Expo on Friday, April5, will receive $500 STA Travel travel vouchers. Honorable mention prizes will include Arcadia University giveaways. Select entries will also be showcased in Arcadia Magazine and on social media.
