Kennedy Center displays photo contest winners

Part of International Education Week activities

Brigham Young University's David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies has announced the results of its fourth annual photo contest.

Participants in the International Study Programs for 2002-03--2,582 students in all--were eligible to enter. Nearly 200 photos were entered in the competition.

Programs depicted in the contest ranged from study abroad in Europe to volunteers in Africa, from internships in Japan to field studies in India.

First place and $100 went to Breanne Bell's "Play Time," which showed a student playing with children in an orphanage in Iasi, Romania; second place of $75 went to David Trichler's "Sandy Day" taken in the sand dunes of Namibia; and third place of $50 went to Jennifer Jackson's "Eating Fufu," a shot capturing hands in a bowl of fufu in Mampong, Ghana.

Honorable mentions were awarded to 13 additional pictures from such locations as Italy, Japan, Mozambique, Guatemala and Senegal.

All 16 photos will be unveiled during International Education Week at an awards ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 20, at 11 a.m. in 238 HRCB, where they will remain on display in the hallway gallery during the next year.

Photos from each year's contest are also archived online at http://kennedy.byu.edu/publications/photo.
