U.S. Embassy Belgrade is pleased to announce a “Summer Work Travel Photo Contest.” We invite Summer Work Travel participants from Serbia to submit photographs that highlight their experience in America. Photographs may focus on the natural environment, culture, places, or people of the United States, among other subjects, from their time in the United States. The contest is open to participants from this year’s program (2017).

Photographs will be judged by a panel comprised of U.S. Embassy representatives. Criteria for judging the photos include, but are not limited to: relevance to the contest title, originality, creativity, effectiveness, and composition. The jury will select up to 10 finalists, including one grand prize winner. The grand prize winner will receive a MacBook Air. Finalists may also have their photographs displayed online and/or at the Embassy or Consulate.

Each participant may submit a maximum of two photographs by email to: SWTBelgrade@state.gov. Each submitted photograph must include a title, description, location, month and year the photo was taken, and make of camera or phone the photograph was taken with. Photo submissions must be attachments in .jpg format, 10 megabytes or smaller, but photo size must be at least 3,000 pixels on the longest side. Contestants must also confirm their participation in the Summer Work Travel Program, and that they are either current students or recent graduates of the program that established their Summer Work Travel eligibility in 2017 by providing the following statement in the text of their e-mail submission: “I confirm that I participated in the Summer Work Travel Program in 2017, I am a [current student/recent graduate] of [insert university program] and I accept the Contest Rules”.
