Winners of the 2016-2017 Photo Contest
Congratulations to Isuri Wijesundara (Class of 2018) and Amy Lin (Class of 2018), the winners of Adelphi University’s 2017 Study Abroad Photo Contest. The Center for International Education received more than 40 photo submissions documenting study abroad experiences from the academic year 2016-2017. Photos included underwater shots from Adelphi’s “Tropical Ecology and Environmental Threats” course in Australia, a picture of a student sketching in her Florence window seat, and spectacular scenery from around the world.
Isuri Wijesundara, a theatre arts major who studied abroad at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art in spring 2017, received first prize for her iconic photo of the London Eye in black and white. Amy Lin’s photo of her playing with a Guatemalan child during her service-learning experience through the College of Nursing and Public Health last January was the unanimous winner of the 2017 People’s Choice Award, which was voted on during International Education by guests at the Global Reception. You can’t help but smile along with the child she is spinning into the air.
Each winner received a $50 gift card to Barnes & Noble and all the finalists received enlarged photos of their entries as a memento of their abroad experience. The Center for International Education would like to thank this year’s judges, President Riordan and Cindy Maguire, Acting Associate Dean and Academic Director of Levermore Global Scholars, and everyone at Adelphi University who champions study abroad. Thank you to the students who shared your photos with the Adelphi Community.
