Overseas Study announces 2011 Photo Contest Winners
September 16, 2011
The Office of Overseas Study is pleased to announce the six winners of the 2011 Overseas Study Photo Contest. The annual contest is open to IU students who studied abroad during the previous summer or academic year.
Entries are judged by a committee of representatives of the Office of Overseas Study within two categories: People and Places. Submissions in the People category were judged on quality and content, with special consideration given to images that depict student interaction with the host culture, students in the academic environment, local culture, and history. Submissions in the Places category were judged based on the best use of architectural, landscape, cityscape, or surrounding environmental elements of the place studied in or visited during the experience, with special consideration given to images depicting students.
Winners were announced at the 2011 Overseas Study Re-Entry Workshop on September 15 at the Hutton Honors College. Each winner receives gift certificates from area restaurants and retail businesses. This year's winners were:
- Ashley Johnson (Cape Town, South Africa, Spring 2011) - First place in "Places" category
