2018 Chicano Latino Research Center Photo Scholarship Contest: Home/Mobility

UC Santa Cruz’s Chicano Latino Research Center (CLRC) welcomes photographs on the themes of home and mobility from UC Santa Cruz students for our first photo scholarship contest. Submissions should address any or all of the following questions: 

  • What does home mean to you? What are its defining characteristics?
  • Who or what moves in our world and for what reasons? 

Thanks to our generous supporters on Giving Day, we’re increasing the scholarships amounts. Three scholarships will be given in the following amounts: First Place $1000, Second Place $750, and Third Place $500. The photographs will be printed 16" x 20" (minimum) and exhibited at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (705 Front Street, Santa Cruz) April 6-July 22, 2018. 

Submission Guidelines
In addition to content, design, and visual quality, we seek photos that respond to any of the questions above in a creative and original manner. Contestants aren't required to respond to all of the questions, but we welcome photos that respond to more than one.
