2014 Global Photo Contest Winners


Farzana Chohan - 1st Place

Timeless Drama of Sky, Water & History          location: Kinderjik, Netherlands

"At this moment white strokes painted a blue sky and an animated blue river provided a perfect image of timelessness. The historical windmills of Kinderjik just enhanced the dramatic effect."

Jake Myers - 2nd Place

Reflecting          location: near Mt. Fuji, Japan

"I really liked this statue of a man sitting by a turtle and looking down into this beautiful pond, so I took a picture."

Kannika Wagle Kotigadde - 3rd Place

Mount McKinley           location: Alaska

"View of Mount McKinley from Denali National Park"



Debora Aberastury - 1st Place

Two Towers          location: London, England

"One of my favorite shots from my study abroad trip to London. It is one of the many moments when it truly felt like the London I read about growing up; absolutely surreal seeing the two 'towers' together that are so iconic to London."

Sophie Ozier - 2nd Place

La Citta Eterna      location: Rome, Italy

"Obviously the Coliseum is an amazing architectural structure, but it is so old that sometimes it seems to almost blend in with nature."

Gabrielle Deimeke - 3rd Place

Pondering Parliament       location: London, England

"This photo was taken from the South Bank. The juxtaposition of the bird and the building makes it really intriguing compositionally."



Jules Brown - 1st Place

Bubbles in Placa de Cataluyna    location: Barcelona, Spain

"Tourists and citizens gather in Placa de Cataluyna in Barcelona on a Saturday morning. A man creates massive, beautiful bubbles that attract the attention of younger visitors."

Emily Stafford - 2nd Place

The Castells     location: Barcelona, Spain

"This photo is of the family tower that won the La Castells Competition in Spain. At the top of the tower is a girl who is probably less than eight years old. They make these towers without any rope or extra materials other than their bodies."

Maria Molteni - 3rd Place

Gaucho Dance     location: Argentina

"Perfect capture of the loving Argentine people and their culture."



Jess Wright

What Makes You Happy    location: Hua Hin, Thailand

 "Since arriving in Thailand, a group of friends and I have been volunteering at a local NGO which supports disadvantaged and abandoned kids. This photo encapsulates what we are trying to achieve as well as the Thai happy and smiley nature."
