A Global Ties ABQ Photo Contest and Exhibit
This year Global Ties ABQ is hosting a photo contest and exhibit featuring your travel photographs. We want to see where you have been this year and will offer prizes in three categories of photographs:
- Social Justice
You decide which category your photograph falls into. One entry per person.
Eligible entries must be photographs taken by you in the 2019 calendar year. Travel can be domestic or international.
We will take submissions between June 1 and October 15. A panel of judges will select three finalists for each category (Economy, Culture, and Justice) that will be featured in a December exhibit (details on the exhibit will be announced shortly). Exhibit attendees will select the winners of each category.
The goal behind this contest is to build community and celebrate the different places and cultures we’ve seen this year, while also celebrating all that is New Mexican. This contest is not a new idea. In the early 1990s, Global Ties ABQ (then the Albuquerque Council for International Visitors) held a similar photo contest that celebrated our ties to the global community.
Global Ties ABQ reserves the right to use all photographs submitted to “Where Ya Been New Mexico” for promotional purposes including marketing for the event.
We also encourage you to practice ethical photography while you are out in the world this year. Here is a good article with some important tips.
