    Jim Grillot Photographer International Photo Award

    The Jim Grillot Photographer International Photo Award has been named to honor Jim Grillot, who was a professional photographer in Oklahoma for more than 30 years. Mr. Grillot began his career as a freelance photographer in the late 1970s and ultimately managed his own business focusing on commercial and pageant photography. The father of Dean Suzette Grillot, Jim Grillot was always a major supporter of his daughter’s international work and would have loved to encourage young photographers to employ their creative eye in a global setting.

    Submit your best international photo in the following areas: landscapes, people, culture, or architecture. All current University of Oklahoma Students who have lived, studied, worked or interned abroad are eligible to enter. Students may enter up to two (2) photos. A faculty and staff committee will choose the top photos to be posted on the CIS facebook page to be voted on.

    Awards include:

    1st place: $150
    2nd place: $100
    3rd place: $50
