The fourth annual ARTstor Travel Awards are coming soon, and for the first time the contest will be open to undergraduates!

Five winners— college and graduate students, scholars, curators, educators, and librarians in any field—will receive $1,500 each to help support travel-related educational and scholarly activities. Winning essays and other selected submissions will be featured in ARTstor and on the ARTstor Blog.

This year the theme is cities: their histories and development, their depictions in art and documentation, their architecture, their ruins, their governments, their peoples, their myths. To enter, create an ARTstor image group or groups and a single essay of 500 words or less that creatively introduces us to a city or cities we did not know or reveals an intriguing aspect of the cities we do know.

Deadlines and details on how to submit will be announced in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
