Xavier Captures the World on Film

Daedline is December 19 | December 4, 2008


Xavier University’s offices of International Student Services, Marketing and Printing Services, Art and the Vice Provost of Diversity are hosting Xavier University’s Third 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 December 19. The competition is open to currently-enrolled students, both graduate and undergraduate. Submission forms are available in various places on campus or can be downloaded at www.xavier.edu/internationalphotos, which also gives contest details. High resolution images should be submitted on a CD to the Office of International Student Services (Gallagher Student Center, 230) by the December 19 deadline.
The entries will be judged by Greg Rust, Xavier’s director for photography, Gene Carmichael, S.J., interim vice president of Mission and Identity, 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.
Winners will receive prizes donated by Xavier University photographer Greg Rust and Canon.
