If a picture is worth 1,000 words, the judges of Smith’s Photo Contest had 199,000 to read through – that’s approximately a 633-page book, in case you are curious.

We received 199 submissions for our second iteration of the Smith Photo Contest at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business and after a month of online voting and judges’ deliberation, we are proud to share the 18 winning photographs from the talented Smith community.

Winners were selected in six categories: action, architectural, campus, global, landscape and portrait. Of the 18 winners, two were selected through online voting through Smith’s Facebook page as the People’s Choice award.

From current students, to alumni, to Smith parents, to graduate assistants, to staff members – the Smith community came together to share the photos that they were most proud of. All 18 winning entries will be displayed on the first floor of Van Munching Hall beginning in the early spring 2015 semester.

Drumroll, please.

Without further ado, feast your eyes on the magnificent photos from our incredibly talented Smith community.
