Penn Alumni Travel is a great way to see the world, make new friends, and learn about fascinating new peoples and cultures. But traveling on a Penn trip is also the perfect chance to hone in on your photography skills and bring a landscape, a culture, or a monument to life. We recently hosted our second annual travel photo contest and, with all the amazing entries, it was difficult to pick a winner. In the end, we named Robert Chewning, WG’76, the grand prize winner for his photograph of hippos in the Serengeti.
Other prizes were awarded to Robert Bartholomew, C’63, GAR’65 for his picture of school children in Peru.
Alice Freed, CW’68, GR’76 for her picture of a Maasai village in Tanzania.
Jack Swope, ME’56 for his image of an impala in the Maasai Mara.
And Julia Moore Converse for her fish sculpture picture in Peru.
A great travel photograph is both beautiful and inspirational and, if these photographs inspire you to travel, check out Penn Alumni Travel’s website (link to: ) for more information about upcoming trips. You can also like us on Facebook and share your own beautiful travel shots!
