The Emory Global Health Institute's annual Global Health Student Photography Contest gives students from across the University an opportunity to combine their interest in global health research with the fine arts. This year, students submitted close to 270 images to the contest, taken during a global health field experience to document the culture and people with whom they are working.  

Winning photographs were announced during the Global Health Scholars Symposium and Global Health Student Photography Contest Awards Ceremony on Oct. 17.  

The following students earned $500 for their winning photographs:  

  • Joshua Gale, Candler School of Theology

  • Emily Havener, Rollins School of Public Health

  • David Muwaya, Candler School of Theology

  • Austin Price, Emory College of Arts and Sciences

  • Claudie Sossah, Laney Graduate School

The event also celebrated winners of the EGHI's 2012 Global Health Institute Field Scholars Awards, a program that supports students from across the University interested in conducting global health field projects either individually or in multidisciplinary teams.
