Global Focus Photo Contest

Since 1999, ISP has hosted 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 MSU faculty, staff, students, alumni, and professional photographers. Winners are chosen from each category and displayed in the International Center.
