World in ViewStudents share their photos in Rochester Review’s eighth annual Education Abroad Photo Contest.

Thanks to Our Judges

Our panel of judges included Allen Topolski, professor of art and art history; Brandon Vick, digital assets manager for University Communications; and Maya Dukmasova ’12, a former winner in the contest and now a journalist and photographer based in Chicago.

Tynelle Stewart, assistant dean and director of the College Center for Education Abroad, helped coordinate the contest.

In the eighth edition of Rochester Review’s annual Education Abroad Photo Contest, we received nearly 150 photos from more than three dozen students who took part in academic programs sponsored by the College Center for Education Abroad during 2015. There were also several photos of the United States submitted by international students who studied at Rochester in 2015.

The photos were taken in more than 30 countries, on five continents, and submitted in the categories of culture, people, and the physical world. Nearly one-third of undergraduates enrolled in Arts, Sciences & Engineering take coursework abroad, a rate that’s nearly double the national average.

Last fall, the office responsible for undergraduate academic programs involving international education was renamed to the Center for Education Abroad. Formerly, it was the College Center for Study Abroad and Interdepartmental Programs.

Grand prize winners receive a gift certificate to the University bookstore. Category winners and other finalists also receive prizes.
