GLIMPSE MAGAZING WRITING AND PHOTO CONTEST:
Glimpse Magazine is excited to announce their two upcoming fall
contests, open to both study abroad and international students:

WRITING CONTEST:
"Foregone Conclusions"

Do all Australians really surf? Do all Americans really want to rule the
world? The Fall 2004 Writing Contest, "Foregone Conclusions," asks
students to think about the cultural preconceptions that they carried
with them into their host countries and/or the assumptions that locals
in their host countries make about them. How accurate are these
preconceptions, and to what extent have they been challenged or disproved?

PHOTO CONTEST:
"A Day's Work"

 From the butcher to the baker to the candlestick maker ... our Fall
2004 Photo Contest calls for compelling photographs of people in their
work environments around the world. Students are asked to submit one
photograph and a brief description of what the work depicted involves
and how it fits into the society's class structure.

The DEADLINE for both contests is October 22.
