Jan 26, 2017

Carnegie Council is delighted to announce the winners of its fourth annual International Student Photography Contest. The topic was Cities/Urbanization. What are the pros and cons and who are the winners and losers?

We were pleased to see a wide range of interesting photos from around the world. The judges awarded one first prize, and two joint second prizes, all featured below.

FIRST PRIZE

The Forest Retreats, For Now...Tucker ReilandUndergraduate student, Asian Studies, University of San Francisco, USA "Everywhere I go in the world, one thing is clear: urbanization hasn't won, nature is simply in a retreat, marshaling strength for the coming counterattack..."---Tucker Reiland (Photo taken in Hong Kong.)

JOINT SECOND PRIZE

"City in Motion"Felix HohneHigh school student, 11th grade, St George's School, Canada

"A photo of Shanghai's Pudong district. 30 years ago, the district was farmland. People would prefer a bed in an another district than a mansion in Pudong. Its only connection to the rest of the city was through an hour long ferry ride. Today, it is the heart of Shanghai's financial district, with some of the tallest buildings in the world directly next to each other."---Felix Hohne

JOINT SECOND PRIZE

"Temporary Home"Madalina PaunicaUndergraduate 2nd year student, Faculty of Fine Arts, Photography and Dynamic Image Department, The National University of Arts, Bucharest, Romania"Haralambie Botescu Street, Bucharest, Romania, January 2011. An old beggar sits on the porch of a sports betting store. The 19th century building, originally an old inn, was due to be demolished as it stood in the way of a new city boulevard."---Madalina Paunica
