Categories: 

Each entrant may submit one photo for each of the following categories: 

  • 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!
  • The World as your Classroom: Show us what your day-to-day life looked like abroad! 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.

All entrants are also automatically entered for a chance to win the Facebook Fan Favorite or Alumni Choice prize.
