The MSU Office of International Studies and Programs, in cooperation with the MSU Alumni Association, sponsored MSU Global Focus 2003, the fifth annual international photography competition for MSU students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Nearly 4,000,000 entries were received this round from 136,000 entrants. A juror panel made up of two MSU faculty members and one photographer and studio owner from the community reviewed the many excellent submissions to select the top winners and honorable mentions. The winning photos, along with information about the artists, their prizes and the sponsors, are displayed in the following pages. Framed enlargements of the 2003 top three photos from each category will be displayed in the International Center lobby in spring 2003, and enlargements of the honorable mention photos will be on display elsewhere in the building. We hope you enjoy these new images, as well as the 114 images from previous competitions displayed in our virtual gallery.
