Dordt College displays results of Alumni Photography Competition

September 18, 2013

The Dordt College Department of Art and Design hosted its first-ever Alumni Photography Competition. All alumni were invited to submit photographs for the competition and an exhibition. 

Entries were collected this summer and a selection of the best photos is now on display in the Dordt College Campus Center Art Gallery through September 27.

A public reception will be held featuring the participating photographers on September 21, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at the gallery. During the reception, the best of show and honorable mention awards will be announced.

The juried art show features 35 of the 130 entries as selected by exhibition juror René Clement, who complimented the work of the college alumni saying they produced “really fine pictures.” Clement himself has been honored with numerous awards including Zilveren Camera awards for Foreign Documentary and News Pictures. He was also published in Time Magazine’s Pictures of the Year issue in 2003.

The public is welcome to enjoy the exhibit free of charge every day from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
