Want your photography to be the next to hang in the Usdan Center? In partnership with the Office of International Studies, the Usdan Art Committee is sponsoring the annual photo contest for study abroaders, international students, and others who have spent substantive time abroad. As with the international photo contest of the past, photos will be displayed in Zelnick Pavilion around the middle of the spring semester. Entries will be judged by a distinguished  panel of Wesleyan experts in art, communication, and international  affairs. The top ten photos will also be enlarged to 24″ x 36″ (or largest size allowed by the resolution of the original) and hung in Usdan common areas in the Spring Semester. At the end  of the show, winners will receive their enlarged print as a prize.

  • Eligibility: Open to all students of Wesleyan University; all entries must be original work.
  • Submit  up to five photographs to tshiner@wesleyan.edu by December 15, 2010 or by dropping them off on CD-Rom at 124 Usdan.
  • Include your name, class year, a title and a description of the photo(s) of no more than 100 words. The description should include information on where and when the photo  was taken, as well as the significance of the subject matter in local  context and in the context of your experience studying abroad. By submitting photos, you are agreeing to permit them to be shown in Usdan, Zelnick, and/or Fisk Hall, as well as on the OIS web site.
  • Photographs will be selected to display in Zelnick Pavilion in the Spring Semester. Of those selected, a panel of judges will choose ten winners to be enlarged and displayed in the Usdan Center.
  • Copyright: Wesleyan University reserves the right to publish winning images in Usdan University Center/Office of International Studies printed materials or websites. Photo credit will be provided, of course (this does not mean academic  credit for a photography class ­ just your name somewhere in the vicinity of the photograph).
  • Entrants must not infringe on the rights of any other photographer or person or submit images that involve the willful harassment of individuals, wildlife or damage to the environment by the photographer.

The Anne Frank house and Drew’s dorm building are on the left, in between the camera and the large church, known as Westerkerk. Anne Frank frequently wrote about the church’s clock tower, which she could see from her hiding spot, located a block from Drew’s room.

The famous bike garage at Centraal Station. This is just a small sampling of the millions and millions of the ubiquitous bikes around the city.
