Since 1999, the MSU Office of International Studies and Programs, in cooperation with the MSU Alumni Association, has sponsored MSU Global Focus, an annual international photography competition for MSU students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Every fall, hundreds of entries are received and evaluated by a panel of jurors made up of a combination of MSU faculty and staff with photographic expertise and professional photographers or studio owners from the community.
Every year winning images are chosen from more than hundreds of entries. These winning photos, along with information about the artists are displayed from the menu above. Framed enlargements of the top three photos, and the People's Choice winners, in each category are displayed in the International Center lobby.
We thank the many participants and other supporters of this popular annual tradition!
We hope you enjoy these new photos, as well as those from previous competitions displayed in our virtual gallery.
