Photography Competition & Exhibition

Photography Exhibition in Ohio UnionFor more than 15 years, the Office of International Affairs has hosted an annual Photography Competition where Ohio State faculty, staff, students, visiting scholars and alumni are invited to submit photos taken outside of the United States. Photographers enter photos in a number of categories, which in the past have included People, Places, Politics, Animals, Signs and Transportation, among others. First, second and third prizes, as well as a number of honorable mentions, are awarded in each category, and one photograph is named "Best in Show."
