We welcome submissions from the Longwood community to be considered for the categories below:

Contest Rules: Each submitted photo must include a title, location, date, and a short caption. Photos must be the original work of the contributor. Each contributor may submit up to four entries. Submissions for Longwood through International Eyes, Lancers Abroad, and Global Learning must have been taken between Dec. 1, 2015, and Jan. 15, 2017. Submissions for Last Look Back and Beyond High Street can date back to 2013. Images should be high resolution .jpg, .png, or .tiff files. With the exception of Longwood through International Eyes, all photos must have been taken outside the United States in conjunction with study or work abroad for Longwood.
