Xavier University’s offices of International Student Services, Marketing and Printing Services, department of Art and Canon are hosting Xavier University’s Fourth Annual International Photo Contest in which students capture different places around the world on film in a manner that exhibits high technical and artistic merit and a sense of place or culture outside the United States. Each participant may submit up to five entries.
The contest is accepting submissions until January 20. The competition is open to currently-enrolled students, both graduate and undergraduate. More information is available at http://www.xavier.edu/internationalphotos/ High resolution images should be submitted on a CD to the Office of International Student Services (230 Gallagher Student Center) by the January 20 deadline.
The entries will be judged by Greg Rust, Xavier’s director for photography, Gene Carmichael, S.J., spiritual counselor in human resources, Lea Minniti, director for international student services, and Jonathan Gibson, assistant professor of art. All contest finalists will have their photos displayed in the “Faces of the World” lounge in Xavier’s Gallagher Student Center, which showcases images of different cultures from around the world.
