Study Abroad Photo Contest 2012

 

Cultural Adventure

1st Place & Grand Prize

Photo Contest Finalist

Aaron Pierce, "Fruit Market in Havana, Cuba", Havana, Cuba

A fruit vendor sells fresh mangos, plantains, and other fruits in one of the fruit markets that IUPUI students visited in Havan

 

2nd Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Angelia Wimbley, "Kindness to all Creatures," Ban Phon, Thailand

On the second morning of our home stay with a host family, were invited to join the villagers in giving alms to monks from area temples. It was doubly heartwarming as a dog lover to witness and capture the kindness also bestowed upon this curious pup.

3rd Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Michelle Haddix, "A Moment Still," Accra, Ghana

This man in downtown Accra holds his child as he watches the chaos. Imagine the world around you spinning. It is a world where the sidewalk is your front yard and taxis never stop running.

 

Most Picturesque

1st Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Lisa Edgington, "Reflections", San Pedro de Atacama, Chile

This photo was taken on my I-phone by a fellow classmate while visiting the Tebenquiche Lagoon in San Pedro de Atacama, Chile. The Cone shaped, snow capped mountain is the Licanabur Volcano. It was a beautiful warm day, in winter, and the water, as well as the sky, was breathtakingly clear.

2nd Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Adrian Smoot, "La Tranquilidad (Tranquility)", Cienfuegos, Cuba

Handmade fishing boats afloat in the natural harbor of a small southern Cuban town overlooed by a colonial era fortress. In the midst of our fast paced lives, it reminds us of a much simpler life.

3rd Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Don Capouch, "Rhino Sunrise", Kenya

Early morning on Lake Nakuru. The White Rhinoceros eats her fill while sunlight gleams off her hide.

Most Unusual

1st Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Katherine Miller, "Secure Love", Paris, France

While on our way to see the Louvre Musuem we crossed over the Seine River on this bridge which was covered with locks. These locks indicated the many French lovers who have secured their love by a kiss on the bridge and the placement of a lock. There were old, new and bicycle locks of all shapes and sizes covering this bridge. It was quite romantic.

2nd Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Steven Chase, "I've already eaten, stop bugging me.", Guangzhou, China

The Southern Chinese tend to find more creative sources of food. It's interesting to know that bugs I've been afraid of my whole life have been consumed for thousands of years. It might be unusual for Americans, but for the Chinese, it's part of the circle of life.

3rd Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Zachary Ringler, "Snow Light," Shitsuko, Japan

Snow sculptures in Shitsuko Japan.

 

IUPUI Students Abroad

1st Place & Community Choice

Photo Contest Finalist

Jeremy Sherer, "In the bullfighting arena just after Brandon Kellinghaus (right) and I (left) ran with the bulls", Pamplona, Spain

In the bullfighting arena just after Brandon Kellinghaus (right) and I (left) ran with the bulls

2nd Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Aaron Pierce, "Omar explains Old Havana", Havana, Cuba

Omar brought students to the roof of his local apartment building so that he could explain the layout and restorations projects of Old Havana from a higher vantage point where students could see a great deal of Old Havana. Omar's unique classroom is certainly off the well-beaten tourist tracks and it was a real honor to be granted such access to Omar's community.

3rd Place

Photo Contest Finalist

Zachary Ringler, "Serene", Taipai, Taiwan

Fellow Hakuoh student exploring the culture of Taiwan.
