Defining: Photographs that define your study abroad experience for you

Category Winner & Grand Prize Winner
Pride Against Fear
Nice, France

"Taken just a week after the terror attack in Nice, this photo and the liveliness in the streets reminds us how resilient hope and unity can be in the face of violence." - Sarah Chiang, SEAS 2018, Summer French Studies Program in Paris at Reid Hall, Paris, France


Crossing cultures:Photographs that illustrate cross-cultural interactions schwarzchild fall 2016 contest

Category Winner
Rock and Roll on the River Tiber
Rome, Italy

"While traveling in Europe during my time abroad one repeating theme was finding American culture creeping into the daily lives of the locals. Of course Music is an international language, but there is something comforting about hearing Jimmy Hendrix tunes amidst never ending foreign languages. I traveled to Rome with my roommate and while neither of us spoke any Italian, we both stopped and listened to unmistakably American rock songs while walking over the River Tiber in Rome." -Avi Schwarzchild, SEAS 2017, University College London, London, UK
