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

Hungary and the Values Test

In the wake of the Hungarian parliament's vote to allow the executive to rule by decree, Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev reflects on the call by some to expel Hungary from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization--on the grounds that the country no longer upholds the liberal-democratic values that should form the basis of the security association.

The Coronavirus Pandemic & International Relations, with Nikolas Gvosdev

With the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting all aspects of daily life around the world, what will be the effect on international relations? Will it increase cooperation among nations, or will it lead to more conflict and competition? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev and host Alex Woodson discuss these scenarios and also touch on how the virus has affected the Democratic primary, in which Joe Biden now has a commanding lead.

Does COVID-19 Change International Relations?

Does a global pandemic change the nature of international affairs? Is it likely to foster international cooperation, or will it promote disintegrative tendencies within the global system? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev shares his thoughts.
