Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs is delighted to announce the winners of its second annual International Student Photo Contest. This year's theme was "Fairness and Its Opposite."
The topic was deliberately made as broad as possible, and the judges were intrigued and pleased to see the wide range of creative and thoughtful interpretations.
First prize, featured here, is "Continuity" by Anum Rehman, of Nishat Girls High School, Pakistan. Ms. Rehman tells us that her photo illustrates both fairness and its opposite. The fairness aspect is that the person inside the door helped this beggar by giving her food. But its opposite is that they left her outside, instead of finding out about her problems and trying to solve them. Instead, they leave her to beg again.
The second prize went to Imrul Islam of Vassar College, who is from Bangladesh. To see all of the photo entries, click here.
