2019 Education Abroad Photography Contest Winners

Czech Demonstrator (1st Place)

Photographed by Mary Schmidt
2019 Maymester, Prague, Czech Republic, Documentary Photography Program

"This photo was taken during a demonstration in the Czech Republic. Protesters from all over the country came to Prague to demand the resignation of their Prime Minister Andrej Babis. Seeing hundreds of thousands of people come together peacefully for a cause was the most inspiring moment of the entire trip. I moved through the crowd witnessing people of all ages use their voices in a language I could not understand, yet I could still feel their sense of urgency and desire. The man pictured in this photo was one strong figure out of the many thousands that attended."

Christchurch, New Zealand (2nd Place)

Spring 2019, New Zealand

"My most memorable experience was scattering my grandfather's ashes at Akaroa harbour near Christchurch, New Zealand. I learned more about my family and my parents' childhoods. As far as what I learned about myself I'd say I learned how to exist on my own outside of my family of groups."

Beautiful Strangers in Berlin (3rd Place)

Summer 2019, Maymester, Community Life: Documented Program

"I shot 11 rolls of film in 5 weeks so I was very focused on my street photography and being inspired by the vibrance and pulse of the European streets I traveled to. This particular woman caught my eye as she was walking her dog in a beautiful park in Berlin. I greeted her in German and then took her portrait. My most memorable experience in general was producing a documentary during the week and then by the weekends I would be in another country like Belgium. It was surreal."

The Monk (Honorable Mention)

Spring 2019, Cambodia

"I was traveling in Cambodia during spring break. And while I was visiting Angkor Wat, I was touched and inspired by the strong Buddhism atmosphere in Cambodia so I took this picture to document an indispensable part of their local culture."
