Winners of the 2016 International Student Photo Contest on Urbanization

Carnegie Council is delighted to announce the winners of its fourth annual International Student Photography Contest. The topic was Cities/Urbanization. What are the pros and cons and who are the winners and losers?

We were pleased to see a wide range of interesting photos from around the world. The judges awarded one first prize, and two joint second prizes, all featured below.

FIRST PRIZE

The Forest Retreats, For Now...
Tucker Reiland
Undergraduate student, Asian Studies, University of San Francisco, USA

"Everywhere I go in the world, one thing is clear: urbanization hasn't won, nature is simply in a retreat, marshaling strength for the coming counterattack..."---Tucker Reiland (Photo taken in Hong Kong.)

JOINT SECOND PRIZE

"City in Motion"
Felix Hohne
High school student, 11th grade, St George's School, Canada

"A photo of Shanghai's Pudong district. 30 years ago, the district was farmland. People would prefer a bed in an another district than a mansion in Pudong. Its only connection to the rest of the city was through an hour long ferry ride. Today, it is the heart of Shanghai's financial district, with some of the tallest buildings in the world directly next to each other."---Felix Hohne

JOINT SECOND PRIZE



"Temporary Home"
Madalina Paunica
Undergraduate 2nd year student, Faculty of Fine Arts, Photography and Dynamic Image Department, The National University of Arts, Bucharest, Romania

"Haralambie Botescu Street, Bucharest, Romania, January 2011. An old beggar sits on the porch of a sports betting store. The 19th century building, originally an old inn, was due to be demolished as it stood in the way of a new city boulevard."---Madalina Paunica

Slowing the Proliferation of Major Conventional Weapons with Jonathan D. Caverley

The news is full of discussions on how to prevent further nuclear proliferation. But you can't understand a conflict like Syria without talking about major conventional weapons, such as artillery, missile defense, and aircraft, says military strategist Jonathan Caverley. Since the U.S. is by far the world's largest producer of such weapons, Caverley proposes that it creates a cartel, similar to OPEC, to slow down sales.

Global Ethics Forum Preview: Russian Media from Soviet Times to Putin, with Jonathan Sanders

Next time on Global Ethics Forum, Stony Brook professor Jonathan Sanders discusses the media and propaganda in Russia, from Soviet times to Putin. In this excerpt, Sanders, former CBS News Moscow correspondent, describes to journalist Randall Pinkston the surprising state of Russian media in 2017.

Fractured Continent: Europe's Crises and the Fate of the West, with William Drozdiak

In some ways Europe is more fragmented than at any time in the last three decades, says Drozdiak. There's a north/south split between wealthy creditor nations and deeply indebted ones; an east/west divide, as Poland and Hungary revert to nationalism; pressures of regional separatism; Brexit; and the migrant crisis. Then there's Trump, who sees Europe as a burden and economic rival. 2018 could be a pivotal year. What will happen?
