SPOKANE, Wash. – The winning entries from the second annual Worldview Photo Contest, sponsored by the Gonzaga University Center for Global Engagement, are on display on the main floor of the Crosby Student Center.
The contest took place from June 1 through Oct. 31, 2013, as part of Gonzaga’s yearlong celebration of Global Engagement. “We thought we would highlight this beautiful photography for other students by mounting a mini-exhibition,” according to Joseph Kinsella, assistant academic vice president for global engagement.
Professional judges chose the winning first-, second-, and third-place photos from three categories based on creativity (50 percent) and photographic quality (50 percent). The judges were Paul Manoguerra, director and curator of Jundt Art Museum, GU art Professor Shalon Parker, and Marek Zaranski, language lab multimedia technician. The contest was open to all Gonzaga students, faculty and staff. Prizes were awarded to all nine winners. The winning photos were exhibited in the Jundt Art Museum recently with a reception.
In the People of the World category, the winners are: 1) “The Song of Venice,” by Melissa Ptolemy; 2) “Outside Looking In,” by Ashlee Zink; and 3) “Life in Motion” by Ashlee Zink.
In the Places of the World category, the winners are: 1) “Sedi di Italia,” by Richard Campana; 2) “Thailand,” by Giovanni Caputo; and 3) “Walking Home from School,” by Lucia Baldwin.
In Doors to the World, the winners are: 1) “India,” by Giovanni Caputo; 2) “Escape to the Red Road,” by Amber Rush; and 3) “Awaiting,” by Kamilla Rzayeva.
In June, the Center for Global Engagement will sponsor the third annual Worldview Photo Contest for the Gonzaga University community.
The Center is comprised of the office of Study Abroad, International Student and Scholar Services, English as a Second Language (ESL), and the Master’s for Teaching ESL (MA-TESL).
