In a tight contest involving 63 entries, the Libraries’ 2015 Student Photo Contest ended with a tie for 1st place and a tie for 3rd place. The annual contest is sponsored by the Friends of the University of Minnesota Libraries.
Tying for the top spot were Nan Sinchai and Meron Ayele. Tying for third place were Liza Gorman-Baer and Maria Soroka. Alicia Lim won the Student Choice Award.
Judging for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place was done by three graduate students in photography in the University’s art department, the chair of the Friends of the Libraries awards committee, and two members of the University Libraries communications team.
The results for the Student Choice Award were based on the number of likes each photo received on the Libraries’ Facebook page. Thanks to everyone who participated!
