Who can participate?
The AIPT Photo Contest is open to any exchange visitor who is currently in the United States and is participating in an AIPT program.
What kind of photographs should I submit?
This spring there will be two categories for photo submission: Cultural Experiences and Professional Experiences.
Cultural Experiences: For this category, submit your photographs that capture your American experience. Send pictures of American landmarks or scenery, or an event you participated in that is unique to America.
Professional Experiences: For this category, submit your photos that capture your professional experience in the United States. The picture can be of you using tools or equipment at your U.S. host employer or of you and your supervisor and coworkers.
What are the contest rules?
You must submit your own photo(s). You cannot submit photographs on behalf of another person. You must be present in every photograph you submit. If you are not in the photograph, it will not be considered for judging. Photographs submitted for previous AIPT contests will not be considered.
