2019 GEO Photo Contest: Tessa Armbruster, Chile, Fall 2018
This is a photo of my friends after a 17 drive hour south. We arrived to the most vast, lifeless beach I have seen in my life. We walked down the beach as if it was our own, and enjoyed the sunlight. 3 months before this they were all strangers with different languages. But here, it looks like they’ve known each other for years.

2nd Place – Hatchling

Lindsay Penn – Panama, Fall 2018

2019 GEO Photo Contest: Jenna Salkovitz, Australia, Fall 2017
I studied abroad in Australia on the Gold Coast back in Fall 2017! This picture was taken on the top of the Q1 building. This is the tallest building on the Gold Coast. You walk up along the side of the building till your reach the top, which is where this picture was taken. The picture does not do the view justice!

2nd Place – Cinque Terre

Hanna Bower – Italy, Fall 2018

Selfie Category 2nd Place: Hanna Bower, Italy, Fall 2018
This photo was taken in Cinque Terre, Italy. "Cinque Terre" literally means the five lands - and I got to hike through all of them! My mom came to visit me and we both love to hike and be outdoors. The hike took us about eight hours in total and I can definitely say it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life so far.
