Congratulations to Julia Reich, Cole Frank, Jordan Palacios, Meg Hine, and Libby McKenna. Great photos!
The five Carleton students’ photographs were chosen from among a compelling array of 96 photos, taken by students in countries ranging from Nepal to Costa Rica to Vietnam, that were entered in the contest through the off-campus study offices at the ACM colleges.
The annual photo contest, now in its seventh year, highlights the importance that ACM colleges place on the diverse perspectives, intercultural understanding, and personal growth fostered by off-campus study, as well as the colleges’ 50 years of collaboration in offering consortial programs, both international and domestic.
The photos richly illustrate the multi-faceted nature of students’ off-campus study experiences — the people they meet and learn from, their explorations of daily life in different cultures, and the exciting possibility of new discoveries around every corner.
Along with a Grand Prize, the contest judges selected 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photos in the categories of People, Places, and Cross-Cultural Encounters and give Honorable Mention recognition to ten other entries. Judging in the contest favors photos, and their accompanying descriptions, that demonstrate cross-cultural engagement and learning as well as visual artistry.
