World Languages and Cultures International Photo Contest 2014

Child Buddha, Mary Ni's entry 2010

Members of the Salem State community (students, faculty and staff) are invited to enter photographs for the 8th International Photo Contest.

We are looking for photos that you have taken yourself during foreign travel: beautiful sights and/or interesting people. (domestic travel may be acceptable if the locale or the people are "exotic" enough.)

Send up to two digital pictures in high quality format to Fatima Serra:

The contest deadline is April 15, 2014.

Twelve photographs will be chosen to appear in a school-year paper calendar which can be purchased from the world languages and cultures department sometime around the end of the spring semester.

The jury will be composed of faculty, staff and students from world languages and cultures.

Besides a school-year printed calendar, a calendar-year may also be published in December for the following year with the same pictures. They make excellent holiday presents or stocking stuffers.

All entries will also appear in the international photo contest website. To view previous years' winners, go to our IPC site (, or click below:
