Open to undergraduate and graduate students, the Vistas photography exhibition and competition highlights the importance of undergraduate and graduate student experiences across Latin America and the Caribbean. A gift card prize is awarded to the best in show photograph. Selected images are featured in the CLAS seminar room (Kelly 114) and in various CLAS publications.
Students who have recently traveled (in the last 12 months) are encouraged to submit captivating photos that depict research, work, volunteerism, and travel in Latin American during the last academic year (including summer).
The deadline for 2019 has passed. Please visit again in Autumn quarter 2020 for the next competition.
- All registered UChicago students are eligible to submit original photography. Limit 2 submissions per student.
- CLAS will offer a $100 gift card for one all-around best photograph, selected by a panel of faculty/staff judges.
- Submissions should to be TIFF or JPG files at least 300 DPI at 11”x14.” Please remember to save and submit your photographs at the largest file sizes you can! Sometimes great images can’t be displayed in the exhibition due to small file sizes.
- All photographs selected for exhibition will be printed and matted at 11”x14.” It is fine to submit your photograph uncropped; but please note that it will be cropped/sized as needed by CLAS.
