Announcing the First-Ever Placement Year International Photography Competition
This global travel photography competition is open to our students, interns and graduates to share their unique perspectives.
Images have the power to connect us to places we’ve never visited and inspire us to understand cultures beyond our own. We are delighted to give this opportunity to our interns to share their global perspectives in our first-ever Placement Year International Travel Photography Competition.
What photos can you submit?
Photo submissions can be anything from portraits, street scenes, landscapes, abstract or wildlife. We simply want to see what is unique and beautiful about your chosen destination and see it through your eyes.
How will a winner be chosen?
The competition is open to anyone who has signed up through Placement Year International and is already in destination. Share your photos with us on Instagram by tagging @placementyearinternational. Make sure to tell us more about the photograph in your caption. Get your friends and family to vote by liking your picture. The winner is the person with the photo with the most likes.
What will you win?
The tagged photo with the most likes will win a FREE CULTURAL EXPERIENCE in your destination to the value of £75. This could be anything from a spa treatment in Thailand, to a surfing lesson in Australia. We will also feature all of your submissions on our Blog for all of our international interns to view. We hope that they will be inspired to travel to your destination
Photo Competition opens on 1 April 2019. You may submit as any photographs as you like, as long as you have personally taken them during your placement with us.
