2022 study-abroad photo contest: Your passport to creative perspectives

May 4, 2022

Despite the challenges posed by a global pandemic, Skidmore students have maintained their sense of adventure and, following stringent protocols, scores have enjoyed semesters living and learning in remarkable places around the world.

From Italy, Denmark, and Korea, to the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom, and even the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, students’ memories — and photos — will last a lifetime.

On average, more than 60% of Skidmore College students study abroad, choosing from 120 approved programs in 49 countries. Each year, students submit their favorite photos in the Off-Campus Study and Exchanges Photo Contest. The 2022 results are in.

Winners were selected in four categories and one all-around "Best in Show" in a Skidmore community poll.
