PLEASE NOTE: FOLLOWING THE LOSS OF FEDERAL TITLE VI FUNDING IN 2022, THE MIDDLE EAST CENTER IS NO LONGER CONDUCTING A PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST. WE HOPE TO BE ABLE TO RESUME THIS PROGRAM IN 2026. TEXT BELOW IS MAINTAINED FOR INFORMATIONAL AND REFERENCE PURPOSES ONLY.
The Middle East Center is now accepting entries for the MEC 2022 Photography Contest.

The winning photo(s) will be featured on the Middle East Center's website, as well as used in promotional materials, with credit given to the winning photographer.
Deadline is Monday, February 14, 2022, at 11:59 PM.
