State Department ExchangesConnect Photo Contest: WIN an iPad 2!
How do people express themselves through dance in your community?
From September 13 until October 25, 2011, you are invited to submit an original photo to the ExchangesConnect Photo Contest, “Dance with Us: Motion across Cultures.” ExchangesConnect is an international online community managed by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in the U.S. Department of State that brings together over 32,000 members for people-to-people dialogue about U.S. Department of State-sponsored exchange and cultural programs. People all over the world, ages 14 and older, are invited to share personal perspectives on dance in their culture by submitting a photo and a short description to ExchangesConnect at http://connect.state.gov. Submissions will be judged on originality, creativity, effectiveness and photo quality. One U.S. and one non-U.S. grand-prize winners will receive an iPad 2 tablet computer and their photos will be displayed in U.S. Department of State venues. Eighteen runners-up will receive T-shirts and copies of the 20 top postcards. Winners will be announced on November 17, 2011.
Get started today – enter “Dance With Us: Motion Across Cultures” and share a photo that represents the movements and rhythms of your unique culture.
