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."
CROSS CULTURAL MOMENTS
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."
GLOBAL GORLOK (this category no longer available)
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."
