Graduate Student Art and Photography Contest - Spring 2018

The Graduate School invites submissions of art work and photography by graduate students for display during the spring semester and beyond. Submissions are limited to three pieces (art and/or photography) per graduate student.

Not ready this semester? Check back here during Fall 2018 for the Fall Art and Photo Contest!


All submissions must be created or photographed by current graduate students. Submissions should show what it means to be a VT grad student.

Show your life, learning and global explorations in your photography and/or art. Submissions should include a short title and description/explanation of the entry.


  • Must be original work by a graduate student, presentable as a wall hanging, or displayed in the GLC display cases outside the Auditorium. We cannot display any perishable items.
