FASS Photo Competition

The Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences and the Dalhousie Arts and Social Sciences Society is pleased to present the 5th annual photo competition for FASS students.

My World in FASS

What does that mean?  Well…you tell us.  It might speak to a trip you’ve taken through study abroad, or perhaps the trip that led you here.  It might be a professor or mentor on campus who led you down a path you hadn’t considered.  From the friends you’ve made to the classes you’ve taken, FASS at Dal is truly a global experience.  Tell us about yours through photo…and you could win!

1st Prize – $100

2nd Prize – $50

3rd Prize – $25
