We are currently accepting entries for the spring 2014 contest through June 31, 2013. Current API students and alumni are eligible to participate.

This photo and video contest will be conducted on *Instagram! We encourage you to take and upload your photos and videos to Instagram, and be sure to tag them with the hashtags #APIphotocontest and #studyabroad. In the comments, make sure to include: your first name & last initial, host city, term and year abroad.

*If you do not have an Instagram account, you may upload your photo(s) below. API will upload the photo(s) on your behalf.

API Photo Contest

We are also conducting our video contest on Vine! Vine is a mobile app developed by Twitter that allows users to create and share short 6 second stop-motion videos directly from their mobile device. We encourage you to take and upload your creative videos to Vine, and be sure to tag them with the hashtags #studyabroad, #APIvideocontest and #studyabroad. In the comments, make sure to include: your first name & last initial, host city, term and year abroad.
