Each entrant may submit one photo for each of the following categories:
- Belonging & Beyond: Show us how culture varies across the world but is inclusive for everyone! You can show examples of how you belong to your abroad community both locally and universally. From cooking in your host family’s kitchen, to a view out your internship’s office building, to students huddled in a university library – give us a real feel for wherever you were.
- Bentley Abroad: Show us your Bentley Pride overseas! The obvious example would be pictures of students in Bentley gear in front of famous landmarks, but feel free to get creative with interpreting this one!
- Landscapes: from stunning natural vistas to bustling urban scenes, this is your chance to show off the beauty of your temporary home!
All entrants are also automatically entered for a chance to win the Fan Favorite or Alumni Choice prize.
