Last year's winning photo.

The Jerry Crail Johnson Earth Sciences & Map Library is pleased to announce our fourth annual photo contest. Open to all undergraduate and graduate students, this photo contest is designed to highlight student photography depicting earth features and natural landscapes.

Photos will be judged on:

  • Artistic merit, composition, and aesthetics
  • How well an earth feature, process, or landscape is captured
  • The short, well-written description of the photograph that explains the earth feature or natural landscape being depicted (one-to-three sentences)

The contest is open to any CU Boulder student, and students can submit up to 3 photos. Submit your photos by Friday, April 13, 2018 at 11:59: PM MST.

The winner of the contest will be announced on May 1, 2018. The winning photograph will be printed, framed, and hung in the library. Runners up will be temporarily displayed in the Earth Sciences & Map Library during the 2018-19 school year.
