We are pleased to announce the results of the annual French & Italian Studies Photo Contest! This year we had many excellent photos submitted by students taken while travelling or studying abroad in France and Italy. 19 finalist's photos were selected and are displayed in the C-wing 2nd floor hallway of Padelford, please come see them!
212 members of the French & Italian Studies community voted for their favorites and the three photos receiving the greatest number of votes received gift cards from the University Bookstore. An open house was held on Wednesday, February 26th in the French & Italian Studies conference room (Padelford Hall C-242) to showcase the top entries and announce our prizewinners. This year we had an unprecedented situation, a tie! The top two photos each received 68 votes, therefore we awarded two 1st Place winners and each received a $75 gift card. See below for the results.
