Click the shutter and burst onto the walls of SMPA!

Show off your creativity and storytelling skills in SMPA’s inaugural “Picture This” competition as you put the SMPA student experience into focus.

Capture the dynamism and diversity of the SMPA experience with your original and creative photos in the ultimate competition among SMPA students.

Whether you capture the mood around D.C. and campus or spotlight a unique storytelling opportunity, this is your shot to make your photo the focal point of conversations about the SMPA student experience.

The grand prize winner will receive a $100 Amazon gift card and the top submissions will be displayed on the walls of SMPA. Winners will be announced in front of the SMPA community at the annual SMPA Celebration Night on April 25.
