Barlow Photo Exhibit

If you have studied off-campus (semester or year abroad, FSA, Off-Campus Short Term, Bates funded fellowship), we encourage you to submit a photo to the

18th Annual Barlow Off-Campus Study Photo Exhibit.

We are looking for geographic and subject diversity, color and b&w, point&shooters and photo artistes. Pictures in which you are visible are welcome, as are pictures that highlight the academic and the immersion aspects of your study abroad experience. Check out some examples from past photo exhibits in the sidebar slideshow.  Please avoid photos which are intrusive, culturally insensitive, or just plain tacky.

The exhibit will consist of 50+ photos chosen from among the entries by an extraordinarily compassionate jury of your peers. The photos will be enlarged and matted (we pay for this) and hung in the Pettengill Atrium.  At the conclusion of the show, the enlarged and matted photos will be returned to the submitters. There will be an official Opening Reception in the Pettengill Atrium on Thursday, March 22.


  • Deadline for submission is Noon on Wednesday, January 31. (This is a FIRM deadline)
  • To maximize enlargement quality: digital photos only (you can scan a print); recommended minimum size: 3MG; image resolution: 1600×1200; 300 dpi.  It is your responsibility to ensure that your image can be enlarged to a 10×15 print.
  • Provide an engaging description of, or story about, the photo.
  • One entry per person
  • The Exhibit will be in the Pettengill Atrium from March 22 – April 5
