The nomination for the best Spring 2014 VIU Photo and the best Spring 2014 VIU Video will be for the following categories:
1- Venice in Everyday Life: What is really different in Venice, beyond the obvious, compared to other cities in the world? You will have to focus of what living in Venice means and on how students and inhabitants of Venice cope with the difficult situations that arise everyday (transport, massive tourism, bridges, pigeons, high water, etc.). How do you see Venice outside the tourist-routes? Is it possible to capture the true soul of Venice in a single frame?
2- Academic Life@VIU: How would you narrate the experience of studying at Venice International University? Focus on the unique multicultural experience of joining students and professors of different nationalities and studying challenging courses. Show us your perspectives on VIU academic life.
3- Multicultural Life inside&outside VIU: What happens during the co-curricular activities? What about your evenings together? And about your trips across Italy and Europe? Because travelling is the greatest way to get to know the others.
