The Pacific Basin Research Center administers an annual photo contest at the beginning of each academic year open to all SUA undergraduate students.

Each student can submit up to three entries, with the 10 winning photographs selected by a committee based on artistic quality, relevance to the PBRC’s mission, and a balance of themes/pacific regions. The PBRC reserves the right to use the winning photographs in promotional materials, including in the PBRC library and website, with full credit provided to the photographer (along with a small monetary prize). The winning photos will also be printed in picture plaques for display in the PBRC library.
