Share your J-1 summer with us!

Are you spending the summer of a lifetime in the United States on a J-1 visa?  Do you want your J-1 summer photos to inspire hundreds of future J-1 applicants too? We want you to share your summer with us and enter our J-1 Photo Contest 2019!

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 the United States and help to inspire future J-1 applicants.

Entries will be shared throughout the summer on U.S. Embassy Dublin social media.  The winning photo will be chosen in October 2019 and will be displayed in the U.S. Embassy Dublin Consular waiting room. The winner will receive a prize and have the opportunity to attend an event at the U.S. Ambassador’s Residence.
