During the Spring Academic Travel trips students and faculty were encouraged to shoot photographs and then enter up to three images in a photo competition. Over 70 entries were submitted for the Spring contest.
The judges for the contest are TASIS photography instructors Kim Nelson and Frank Long. One grand prize is given and the winner for the Spring contest is senior Lara Hekimolgu for her image taken on the Art History Istanbul trip. The grand prize winner has a choice for their prize - a one-year subscription to David duChemin's online Photography magazine or a batch of Mrs. Nelson's freshly-made chocolate chip cookies.
A similar contest took place for the Fall Academic travel. Below is a gallery of selected images from the Spring contest. More images can be viewed here: Academic Photography Contests 2012-2013
