View photography from around the world in this exhibition featuring work by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill alumni, faculty, staff and students. The exhibition will open Jan. 11 and run through July 21, 2017 at the FedEx Global Education Center. All photography on display was submitted as part of UNC’s annual Carolina Global Photography Competition. The judges’ committee selected winning photographs with special consideration given to images that are distinctive and embrace a new perspective. Photographs have been selected for first, second and third place as well as thematic and regional spotlights.
Thematic spotlights were awarded to photos that incorporated the following themes:
- Chancellor’s choice (photographs the Chancellor finds globally relevant and distinctive)
- Food for All: Local and global perspectives
- Global perspectives within the U.S.
- Learning moment
- Nature’s beauty
- A new take on an old landmark
- School spirit
Regional spotlights were selected by each area studies center and departmental unit housed in the FedEx Global Education Center. Each center selected a photo representing their mission, vision, academic focus and/or world area.
