Improvements to the contest this year include larger cash prizes and displays for the College and larger community to enjoy.
Winning photos will be on display for two months at The Hub Café in downtown Danville and in Grace Doherty Library on campus. The top photographers received a cash prize. Winners also get all the coffee and tea they can drink at The Hub while their work is on display.
"We tried to make the students' work visible to the community," said senior and international program intern Molly Buckley who spearheaded the contest's improvements. "Displaying the winning photos at The Hub will allow the community to see what's going on with study abroad at Centre, and also gives the winners a little more fame."

Second place ($50) went to junior Darcy Wheaton of New Albany, Ind., with her picture of Norman Foster's Dome at the Reichstag in Berlin, Germany.
