Study Abroad

Announcing the winners of the 2018 Landmark College International Photo Contest!


We received more than 50 entries from students and alumni for the 2018 International Photo Contest. The judges had a hard time picking but in the end chose a winner and two runners-up in three categories. We also held a “popular vote” at lunch on campus on November 14, 2018, and students, faculty, and staff were able to choose from a selection of finalists. Congratulations to all our winners, and thanks to all those who entered!

Judges&#rsquo; Picks

In judging the photos for this year’s photo contest, there were a number of photos that individual judges were fond of, which may not otherwise fit into our categories and were not awarded other prizes. Each judge picked one photo for a special mention.

“Barrels of Sake” (Japan) by Katie Godowski, chosen by Kari Post; “Enzo the Yorkshire Terrier” (Guatemala) by Celina Novella, chosen by Todd Miller; “Boats in Ireland” by Caroline Hubley, chosen by Jessica Lindoerfer; “Hike at Ram Head Peninsula” (St. John, USVI) by Alyssa Partington, chosen by Jen Morris.
