"Personal Space"

The Hyde Parks Barracks Museum in Sydney, Australia, recounts the stories of many inmates who lived there. From prostitutes and pirates to rebels and runaways, the Hyde Park barracks housed them all from 1819 t0 1848. Many of the inmates came from the Motherland, England, but they all had one thing in common: a lack of personal space. This picture represents all of the personal space guaranteed to each inmate; only enough to lie down. 


2018 Second Place

2nd place: Kennedy Onuam

"Muslim Market Place"


The Muslim Street Marketplace serves as a market place for people to buy goods. This marketplace is very lively and has many vendors who practice Islam. 


2018 Third Place
3rd place: Kristen Bowman

"A Bird's Eye view from the Berlin Victory Column"


Over the duration of Germany's vast history, there have been many battles. Just one of them was against the French in the Franco-Prussian War (1870-1871). When the column was erected, it instantly became a source of pride for the Germans and reminder to the French that they had lost a battle. From the top of this column, a person cannot help but feel victorious as he or she takes in an incredible bird's eye view of Berlin.

Study Abraod  will have its annual Study Abroad Photography Contest for students who go abroad during the December 2018, Spring 2019, and Summer 2019 semesters. Studying abroad goes well beyond the tourist experience and involves a deeper understanding of the host country, values, and culture. We encourage you to submit photographs with a short description that reflects your new knowledge in the following areas:


  • Culture, customs, and traditions
  • Nature
  • City Landscapes
  • Student Life Abroad

Eligibility Requirements
