Submit your photos to Vistas de la/da Pandemia Photography Contest

This exhibition—the 2020–21 version of our annual competition—will highlight the ongoing engagement of our students, faculty, and alumni with Latin America and the Caribbean during the pandemic.

We invite you to submit photos that depict the continued presence of Latin America and the Caribbean in your life during the pandemic. Do you have photos of an iconic, but perhaps empty, site in the region? Piles of Latin Americanist books that you’ve been working your way through? A screenshot of a Zoom meeting with research collaborators? Photos can cover a variety of daily life and/or academic experiences, but should have some connection to Latin America and the Caribbean.

We will construct an online exhibit with a selection of submitted images and may use some in our annual newsletter.

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Friday, July 2, 2021, 5pm CDT.


In addition to submitting your photos, please fill out this form. Submissions are complete only when photos are submitted and form is completed.

• UChicago students, faculty, and alumni are eligible to submit original photography. Limit 2 photos per person.

• CLAS will offer a $100 gift card for one all-around best photograph, selected by a panel of faculty/staff judges.

• Submissions should be TIFF or JPG files at least 300 DPI at 8”x10.” The winning photo will grace the cover of the CLAS newsletter and needs to be large enough to print at that size.
