The International Photo Contest is an opportunity for UMSL students, faculty, and staff to share original photography taken outside the United States. Entries are judged on the quality of the image, artistic expressiveness, and creativity. Judges also reserve the right to consider geographic and thematic variety, as well as relevance to the mission of International Studies and Programs, in selecting the winners. This contest is typically held in the spring.
