To view the winning photographs, go to http://business.und.edu/gaps/.

The photographs that were submitted reflected the diversity of UND "life" and were shot on campus during 2007. Prizes were awarded in three categories: digital, black and white film, and color film, plus an overall grand prize. The images were judged based on content expression, composition elements, and technical quality. In addition to awarding prizes, the winning photographs were displayed at the Memorial Union. They are now being framed to be displayed permanently at Student Health Services in McCannel Hall.

The contest is open to everyone and will be held again next year, so start taking those great shots of UND 24/7!
