About the #McGillAbroadSelfieContest 

Every year McGill students traverse the globe reveling in a variety of international student mobility experiences. Given all these adventures, we’re confident that there's a common awareness of —and perhaps a repressed passion for—one of the 21st century’s most enduring phenomena - the selfie.  To showcase the highlights of these incredible student experiences, McGill Abroad’s iconic annual Selfie Contest is back! 

Who can enter?

Any student who participated in an international student mobility experience during Summer 2018, Fall 2018 or Winter 2019.  International student mobility experiences include exchange semesters, independent study semesters, international internships, field study courses and semesters, summer courses abroad, international clinical rotations, etc. If you’re not sure if you’re eligible, get in touch to find out by sending an email to mcgillabroad [at] mcgill.ca.

How can I enter?

  1. Choose up to three of your favourite selfies from your time abroad.  Make sure your submissions are high-resolution, clear, well-lit and represent your unique international student mobility experience!  Large photos are best for getting high-impact engagement from contest voters.
  2. Sign the File Selfie Contest Consent Form 2019. If you submit an USIE (group selfie), everyone in the photo is required to sign the release form.
  3. Review the PDF icon McGillAbroad Selfie Contest 2019 Conditions
  4. Submit your signed photo release form and your chosen photos to mcgillabroad [at] mcgill.ca with the subject line “McGill Abroad Selfie Contest Submission”. Include your full name, student number, program and year of study (e.g., Mechanical Engineering, U3), and your international activity and location(s) (e.g., Internship in Doha, Qatar.)

The last day to submit your photo(s) and consent form is Sunday April 7, 2019 at 11:59pm EST.
