Recently, American Councils celebrated its 40th anniversary. And looking ahead, 2016 marks an important year in our history as the first Outbound program, the Russian Language and Area Studies Program, turns 40! To commemorate this momentous occasion, we are holding an alumni photo contest.
Any alumni of an American Councils Outbound study abroad program is eligible to submit photos for consideration. We'd like to incorporate our alumni's photos into our 2016-17 catalog. The theme of our alumni photo contest is "Go Beyond Ordinary."
Submit any photos from your time abroad while on an American Councils' program that you think shows how your study abroad experience was unique and anything but ordinary!
Submit your photos by June 14, 2015. Winners will be announced by June 30, 2015.
- Photos must be high quality - the larger, the better. Scans of older photos are fine, as long as the scans are clear.
- Photos must have been taken while on program and by the alumnus/na submitting the photos.
- The photo cannot contain any inappropriate behavior, unlawful activity, nudity, or swearing.
The first place winner will receive a $50 Amazon giftcard and their photo may appear on the cover of our 2016-17 program catalog.
