Celebrating International Connections in a Time of Isolation
With international borders closed indefinitely and hostility against foreigners rising, global cooperation is greatly threatened from the personal diplomacy level up to the United Nations. The IC21 International Photo Contest provides an opportunity for the Jackson Hole community to celebrate shared global experiences while socially distancing during this pandemic. The contest also accepts globally-focused photos taken locally to increase accessibility and spotlight our community’s vibrant but sometimes underappreciated international ties.
Young photographers are encouraged to participate in a separate student division. Winning photos will be printed and displayed at the Legacy Lodge to connect with local seniors and provide the residents with new views of the world while they are socially distancing. Our goal is to engage local community members in a positive, unifying veneration of collective human experience.
The photo contest is open from June 23 through July 14 at 11:59 PM. Our panel of judges includes Pulitzer Prize winner David Hume Kennerly, pioneering conservationist Robert Glenn Ketchum, and local bilingual artist Lina Collado.
Despite closed geographic borders, the International Photo Contest provides an outlet for our community to commemorate and share impactful moments from around the world. Together, we will thrive through this challenging time!
