Enter the Eye on the World Photo Contest

Do you want to win a $300 travel voucher? Submit your photos to the Eye on the World! Deadline is February 15th, 2019.

Every year, the Center for Global Education hosts a photo contest and exhibit known as the Eye on the World. We are asking the campus to submit photos of their international experiences. Please note that only students are eligible to win prizes.

You have taken some incredible photos of your study abroad experience, travels and adventures and shared them on social media. We now want you to share them with us and the Wheaton community! Thank you to those who have already submitted their photos.

Entries will be judged by a faculty/staff committee and the top five photos in each category will be put onto a Facebook album. People will “like” their favorite photo from each category and the ones with the most likes will win prizes. The winning photos in each category will be printed and put on display in Balfour Hood Atrium. Students, faculty, and staff are invited to submit a maximum of five photos (one photograph per category), taken abroad anywhere in the world (taking into consideration that the U.S. is abroad for our international students), in each of the following categories.

  • Global Issues and Awareness
  • (I)Selfie
  • Building Community Together
  • Challenging Identity
  • Global Classroom

Prizes will be awarded to the first three places in each category!

  • Grand Prize (best photo matching criteria) – $300 flight voucher
  • 1st prize – $100 Amazon Gift card
  • 2nd prize – $50 Amazon Gift Card
  • 3rd prize – $25 Amazon Gift Card

We leave it up to you to interpret each category and explain how your photo relates to it as you see it; however, we ask that all photos represent your interaction with a culture other than your own.
