RLL Photo Prize

Undergraduates taking part in any study abroad program over the course of the academic year are encouraged to submit their photos to be considered for the RLL Photo Prize. To be eligible, photos should be taken in a country where a Romance language (French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, etc.) is commonly spoken. The winning photos will capture the student’s linguistic/cultural immersion experience. In addition to a photo, submissions must include a short explanation (no more than three sentences) of its significance. The prizes will be distributed by a panel of judges as follows:

  • 1st place: $250
  • 2nd place: $150
  • 3rd place: $100

The winning submissions will be displayed in the RLL office.
