CESS 2019 Photo Contest

In a world where the visual is becoming an integral part of knowledge, visuals can also express scholarly knowledge. As such, for CESS 2019, we are organizing our first-ever photo contest under the title: “The Researcher and His/Her Fieldwork in Central Eurasia.”

We invite scholars and journalists to submit photos of Central Eurasia (as defined by CESS) that reflect on the relationship between the researcher and the object of research and illuminate the different faces of fieldwork.

30 to 35 photos will be selected to be exhibited in the main hall of The George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs from October 1 to October 31, 2019.

  • The competition is open to all CESS members who have paid their membership for 2019
  • Photos should be high resolution. CESS reserves the right to reject any photos that cannot be printed in sufficiently high quality
  • Each photo should be accompanied by a short text (100 words maximum) explaining the meaning of the photo, as well as the place and year it was taken

Please send your photo with text to: CESSPHOTOS2019@gwu.edu

The deadline to submit photos is May 31, 2019. Winners will be announced on June 28, 2019.
