World Languages & Cultures Department - Photo Contest

Why did we start the Photo Contest, you may ask? In the World Languages and Cultures Department we believe that spending time abroad can not only help with language learning through an immersive experience but it also opens the door to a new world, and new career opportunities, by diving into the culture.

We hope that by promoting this contest we can show other CWU & WLC students what they have to look forward to if they decide to expand their horizons and Travel Abroad! The photo gallery in our lounge area will serve as a lasting record of the places we’ve gone to.

Photo Contest Rules:
  1. Digital pictures are accepted in JPEG format.
  2. Please provide a title, location and date of the photograph.
  3. Please provide info about yourself (Your program of study and year of graduation or anticipated year of graduation)
  4. Winners will receive: Recognition in our Spring Quarter Newsletter; photo will be hung in our student lounge gallery, and will receive a Gift Card.
  5. Unless otherwise indicated, all entries may potentially be shared on newsletters, website, and social media platforms with photo credit included.
