of Arts and Sciences Associate Dean Kathleen
LaVoy announced the 17 winners and honorable mention photographers of the
2012 Imagining the World:
Study Abroad and International Photography Competition. Their photos are now
on display in the Kinsey Gallery. Ryan
Green, International Student Director, joined a group of professional
photographers who reviewed 130 submissions by 36 students. “These 21
photographs go beyond capturing moments in time,” LaVoy said. “Each student
shared a very personal window into the world.” Students who study
abroad as well as international students are eligible for the competition.
Awards were given to Joyce Keeley, first place, for “Seaweed Harvest;” Ha
Nguyen, international winner, for “Pioneer Square Station" (above); Melissa
Howlett, second place, for “Jesus Was a Fisherman;” and Devan L. Miller, third

reception on April 11, 5 – 7 p.m., in Kinsey Gallery. The College of
