Photographs were entered into one of two categories: ISyE Faculty and Students Exploring Other Countries or ISyE International Students Exploring the United States. No limit was set on the number of photographs an individual could submit. For this first contest, seven members of the ISyE community submitted thirty-nine photographs. Two PhD students captured the attention of our judges and ran away with a majority of the awards. They are: Clarence Wardell III and Feng Qiu. All winning photos will be featured in the upcoming issue of ISyE's Alumni Magazine.

Congratulations to the following winners:

Category: Exploring Other Countries

1st place: Clarence Wardell III, PhD Student, for his photograph titled: Woman in Rice Field
Description: During the spring of 2008, I traveled to the INNOVATE Conference on Globalization and Technology as a part of the Georgia Tech delegation. The conference took us to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Singapore for ten days. "Woman in the Rice Field* was taken in Vietnam during the course of this trip. As we traveled from the city center out to the Mekong Delta, our bus stopped on the road alongside a rice field. There were several workers harvesting rice in the field. The temperature was extremely hot, very near 100 degrees, and as you can see the women are dressed to protect themselves from exposure to the sun.

2nd place: Clarence Wardell III, PhD Student, for his photograph titled: A Vatican View
Description: In Fall 2007, I made a trip to Rome, Italy over the Thanksgiving break. While there, I had a chance to experience some of the ancient treasures that the city has to offer. This particular photo was captured while at the Castel Sant' Angelo. The woman is peering onto the city below, while in the background an image of St. Perter's Basilica can be seen.

3rd place: Pinar Keskinocak, Associate Professor, for her photograph titled: Alanya Coastline
Description: This picture was taken in Alanya, Turkey. Alanya is in the south of Turkey, along the coast.

Honorary Mention: Clarence Wardell III, PhD Student, for his photograph titled: The Mekong Market
Description: As we arrived at the Mekong Delta, we traveled by boat along the river. As in most areas, the river is used as a mode by which goods are transported. There is a market along the Delta, to which this man was headed to sell his goods.

1st place: Feng Qiu, PhD Student, for his photograph titled: Lake Mendota, Madison WI: Beautiful Memories
