AACUPI Juried Photography Competition

A few weeks ago I sent some prints to a contest run by the Association of American College and University Programs in Italy. They allowed you to send a maximum of 3 photos. The theme of the photos needed to represent "Study abroad in Italy". To my surprise, I found out only a few days ago that I got in! Unfortunately, the association didn't notify me of my success until after the opening! I was slightly disappointed, but I got over it :). There were 245 photos entered into the contest and 50 accepted. The top three were awarded cash prizes! Although I didn't make it into the top three, I'm still pretty happy I got in there. Thanks to my friends that came out to see the show with me! It will be on until November 13th at the SACI gallery: 11 Via Sant' Antonino, Florence, Italy.




Others I liked:


  1. You've been busy! Way to go on Top 50 brotha,you're shots are looking greasy

  2. That's awesome. Glad you finally got in :) It's a great photo.

    Rhett says the top photos sucked the proverbial dick and you should have won.

  3. I am in agreement with Rhett. I'm glad he speaks his mind! So very happy for you Shane.
