Welcome to A World of Photos—Quarantine Edition! 

This is the 16th annual photo contest held by Modern Languages & Literatures and the Language Learning Center. Open to all students, faculty, and staff, entrants submit photos in four categories:

  • Urban Scenes: Urban landscapes, scenes of everyday life of cities 
  • People: Portraits or action scenes with one or more individuals as the focus
  • The Natural World: Animals (natural habitats or landscapes)
  • Narrative Photography: Stories are integral to all cultures, and storytelling often has timeless qualities. Behind every photo there is a story, and many photographers are skilled at communicating with both words and images. We would love to hear the story behind your decision to pick up the camera and capture an image.

Usually restricted to pictures taken abroad, this year photos taken in the United States are eligible for the contest.
