2013-14 Photo Contest

Gallery of Photos

Two girls that a student met while traveling in the Usambara Mountains in northeastern Tanzania were the subject of a photo awarded the Grand Prize in the sixth annual ACM Off-Campus Study Photo Contest.

The photo, "Girls in the Shambaas" by Abby Guthmann from Lawrence University, was selected for the top prize from among 109 photos entered in the contest through the ACM colleges' off-campus study offices. All the photos were taken by current students at ACM colleges while they were studying on off-campus programs around the world.

The Berber

Facebook Fans' Choice award winner: "The Berber" by Imsouchivy Suos, Luther College.

Nine other photos were awarded 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place in each of three categories – People, Places, and Cross-Cultural Encounters – and 12 photos received Honorable Mention recognition.

Visitors to the ACM Facebook page cast a total of 3,270 votes for the Fans' Choice Awards. Imsouchivy Suos from Luther College swept the top three places with photos he took in North Africa and Turkey.

All of the prize-winning, Honorable Mention, and Fans' Choice photos will be available for display at ACM campuses in a digital photo exhibit during winter and spring 2014.
