When You Return

Your study abroad experience doesn't have to end just because you've finished your program and returned home. Our office provides a variety of opportunities for you to continue learning, exploring and sharing your experience.

OCP Photo Contest

The photo contest is open to Whitworth students that have or are currently studying abroad/away on an off-campus program. Applicants may submit only one photograph for each category below. We will select one winning photo and runner-up for each category. Submission deadline is Nov. 1.

  • Category 1 – Student Experiences
    Show us those once-in-a-lifetime moments that you would never have been able to have in Spokane. From a hike in the mountains of Uruguay to an internship in South Africa, ask yourself: Did study abroad change the way you look at yourself and the world? Capture that moment.
  • Category 2 – Local Culture & Tradition
    We are looking for photos that showcase the culture and customs unique to the areas you studied or visited. Show us an image that captures the essence of your host country. From the dragon boat races of Hong Kong to the street vendors of Morocco, be sure to look beyond the landmarks.
  • Category 3 – Landscapes
    Submit your best landscape photo. From a sweeping shot of the Barcelona skyline to a picturesque mountain range, capture the landscape that took your breath away.


Entrants and winners will be notified via email with results, and a public announcement will be made. Winning photos will be enlarged and put on display during International Education Week, Nov. 18-22.
