View photography from around the world in this exhibition featuring work by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill alumni, faculty, staff and students. The exhibition will open Jan. 10 and run through July 20, 2018 at the FedEx Global Education Center. All photography on display was submitted as part of UNC’s annual Carolina Global Photography Competition. A committee of judges selected the winning photographs, with special consideration given to images that are distinctive and embrace a new perspective. Photographs were been selected for first, second and third place as well as thematic and regional spotlights.

Each area studies center and departmental unit housed in the FedEx Global Education Center selected a regional spotlight photo that represented their mission, vision, academic focus and/or world area.

Thematic spotlights were awarded to photos that incorporated the following themes:

  • Chancellor’s choice (photographs the chancellor finds globally relevant and distinctive)
  • Food for all: local and global perspectives
  • Global perspectives within the U.S.
  • Learning moment
  • Movement
  • Nature’s beauty
  • A new take on an old landmark
  • School spirit
