It is my pleasure to share with you the current Global Focus winners gallery.

As always our judges struggled with singling out winners for first, second, third and honorable mention awards. Our judges include a professional photographer, a staff member from the Eli Broad College of Business, and an International Student. They were impressed by this year’s class of entries and spent considerable time studying and evaluating each photograph on its own merits. We are also proud to have additional winners of the People’s Choice award, selected by online votes from the greater Spartan community.

First place went to a photograph taken in Myanmar by horticulture student Ben Henshaw titled “Mandalay Stroll,” a photojournalistic-like image of a “Mother and Child” in Darfur by anthropology alumna Jennifer Marcy and  an artful image titled “Restaurant by the lake” by entomology professor Zachary Yong Huang.

“People’s Choice” winners were “Rural India” by Pathobiology and Diagnostic Investigation student Madhan Subramanian,  “Carrot Top” by social science alum Glenn Detrick and “Fresh Cherries” by education instructor Leigh Graves Wolf.

These pictures, along with the second, third places and honorable mentions, will be featured in publications and websites managed by International Studies and Programs, MSU Alumni Association and MSU’s international centers and units. Additionally, winners will be placed on display in the lobby and on the walls of MSU’s International Center in the very near future.

Winners will be notified of their prize awards in a separate email message.

Thank you for entering Global Focus.  We look forward to seeing your entries for the 2011 competition.
