In the College of Arts and Sciences, our passion for understanding the global community influences all we do. We encourage our students, faculty, and staff to engage actively with diverse cultures around the world through faculty-led programs abroad, language studies, partnerships around the globe, service learning, International Studies, student and faculty exchanges, internships, and Xavier Global House. Arts and Sciences has led the university in its effort to develop an international focus.
This annual photography competition highlights our college's participation in the global community. Through this contest, students, faculty, and staff capture more than a moment in their experience – they share a very personal window into the world they explore.
The award recipients’ photos are included in the 'Imagining the World' photography book and exhibit at the Kinsey Gallery, open to the campus community and public during Spring Quarter.
Winners and honorable mention contestants are also recognized at the Annual Awards Ceremony and Artists Reception.
The program is open to:
Submitted photos will address the theme: "Imagining the World." Entries should go beyond the "postcard" and express the entrant’s vision and understanding of life in the host country.
A panel of professional photographers judge the photos on their technical merit and how well they address the contest theme.
The 12th Annual Imagining the World Competition will open for submissions during Fall 2019; watch for our announcements.
2018-19 Winners with Dean David Powers (l to r) Yibo Sheng, Marc Cohen, Annie Johnson, Rhagad Ashoor, Hilary Sturgeon, Emily LaRoche, Taylor Maihui, Hallie McPherson, and Nils Gollersrud.
