Online Voting

We have narrowed down the selection of FIS photo contest entries to the top 20.

Please help us determine our top prize winners by voting for the top three entries, in no particular order. Entries receiving the greatest number of votes will receive gift cards from the University Bookstore: 1st prize - $75; 2nd prize - $50; 3rd prize - $25.

Remember, photos should depict or capture the experience of contact with a French- or Italian-speaking culture or land.

An open house with refreshments will be held on Wednesday, December 5th at 2:30pm in the hallway of the French & Italian Studies wing of Padelford Hall (PDL C-254) to showcase the top 15-20 entries and honor our prize winners.

This is a great chance to meet other students in French & Italian Studies, find out about upcoming courses, and to get to know department faculty. Email frenital@uw.edu with any questions.
