Members of the Salem State University community (students, faculty and staff) are invited to enter photographs for the International Photo Contest 2011 of the Foreign Languages Department.

We’re looking for photos that you have taken yourself during foreign travel: beautiful sights and/or interesting people. Domestic travel photos may be acceptable if the locale or the people are “exotic” enough.

Send up to two digital pictures in high quality format to Professor Jon Aske. The deadline is May 8.

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

The jury will be composed of volunteer faculty, staff and students from foreign languages.

A calendar-year calendar may also published in December for the following year with the same pictures. They make excellent holiday presents or stocking stuffers.

Sometimes a larger subset of all the entries, including the 12 pictures chosen for the paper calendar, is also published in a free computer screensaver for Windows.

All entries will also appear in the international photo contest website. To view previous years’ winners, go to our departmental photo page:

The official announcement can also be seen online here with links to photos, etc.:
