GTTP Research Competition
GTTP Travel Photo Competition: “Something Special”
The goal of the Digital Photo competition is to show a special aspect of a student’s community to people who have never been there. The photo should make the viewer want to come visit. Photographs could be of a historic building; a natural feature, such as a lake or mountain; an event, such as a procession; a local specialty, such as food; an activity or sport; a person or a group of people.
