The photos were taken by U of M students while studying abroad during the 2009-10
academic year. They depict scenes in Argentina, Belgium, China, Costa Rica, England,
Finland, Italy, Japan, and Spain.
A committee made up of faculty, staff, and students will judge the photos on their
artistic merit and on how well they communicate a cross-cultural experience. First-,
second- and third-place finishers will receive travel vouchers.
