"Where in the World Have You Been?" is the title of a new international business photo competition sponsored by the Global Management Center at Brigham Young University's Marriott School.
Entries displaying international business scenes from stock markets to village markets will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Oct. 31, 2003. The overall winner will receive a $50 cash award.
"We want to see interesting photos that showcase cross-cultural business settings--not just an average suit and tie snapshot inside an office," says Global Management Center managing director Tad Brinkerhoff.
The competition, open to all BYU faculty, staff, students and alumni, promotes global business experiences.
"Our job at the center is to help internationalize the faculty and student body through a number of foreign business study programs, internships, language classes and international faculty opportunities," Brinkerhoff says. "We thought that a photo contest would be a fun way to raise awareness for these programs as well as just getting people to think more about international business."
A complete set of rules, official entry form and photo release form for the contest can be found on the GMC's Web site: http://marriottschool.byu.edu/gmc .
The Global Management Center is part of the Marriott School of Management. The center elevates international business within the school by internationalizing faculty, students and curriculum at BYU. It also facilitates global outreach with other universities, colleges and businesses in the region.
Nearly 15 percent of Marriott School students come from outside the United States and most of the faculty and students have lived abroad. Some 80 percent of students are bilingual, and more than 25 percent speak three or more languages fluently.
