J-1 Photo Contest 2018!

Michelle O'Leary - J-1 Photo contest winner 2017

Calling all J-1 students!

As you passed through our waiting room on the day of your visa appointment, did you notice the amazing photographs of J-1 students, just like you, enjoying their American adventures?  Do you want your J-1 summer photos to inspire hundreds of future J-1 students too? We want you to share your summer with us and enter our J-1 Photo Contest 2018!

Throughout your summer in the United States, please share high resolution photos of you and your friends living the American dream!  We’d like to see your interpretation of life in America, and help to inspire future J-1 students.

Entries will be shared throughout the summer on U.S. Embassy Dublin social media. The best photos will be chosen in October 2018, and will be framed and displayed in the waiting room. Winners will have the opportunity to attend an event at the U.S. Ambassador’s Residence. There will be a prize for the overall top photo submission.

Photo entries must be high resolution – no screenshots or filters please! Please send entries to DublinJ@state.gov

All entries must be received by midnight on Sunday September 30, 2018
