Winners Announced: October 18, 2021 (During International Week)

Theme: "Finding Sanctuary in Chaos”

Stay tuned and follow us on Social Media @gcsustudyabroad to see winners announced


We know the past year has been filled with lots of chaos and unknowns, so show us what has brought you peace during this time. We are interested in photographs that display a personal connection and have different aspects of everyday culture whether at home or abroad.
(For example, people you meet, what the locals see, candid style, street photography, landscapes).
This year we will have 2 different categories:
1) At Home: Images for this category should include photos that depict things that have brought you peace at home. “At Home” is up to your own interpretation. What made you feel the most secure in the past year wherever you found your home to be either new or old?

2) Away: Did you travel during the pandemic? Were things different? Did home feel a little further away? However you got out in the last year, the images for this category should consist of things that display a time away from home, how you felt peace, and new security.

Each contestant MUST be a Georgia College student, faculty, or staff and the original author of the photo. The contestant must have taken the photo. Amateur photographers ONLY.
