In celebration of International Education Week, the Office of International Studies and Programs (OISP) is hosting a photo contest with the winners each receiving a GoPro! Illinois State faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to submit their entries on the Global Redbirds Facebook page.

We are looking for photos that express the beauty of our globe, the joy of intercultural exchange, or the diversity of our campus community. You could submit a picture from your Study Abroad trip, a photo from your home country, snapshots from your vacation, or even a photo of you and your friends.
