  • (LEFT) Dalton Touchberry, 'The Bubble Man' - GT-Lorraine (France); Innsbruck, Austria: "Walking through the streets of Innsbruck, we happened upon this man, standing in the city square with his bubble contraption. I couldn't miss capturing this moment - with the city and alps in the background and this guy with his bubbles in the foreground, it felt so surreal! For a moment I'm sure I felt just like the kids running around through his bubbles." Winner - Best Cultural Experience (Education Abroad)
  • (RIGHT) Gulshan Kumar, 'Future Reflecting History' - BC in the UK Summer Program; Glasgow, Scotland: "While roaming around the city of Glasgow, An interesting angle was created between my camera, and these couple of buildings. Subject of the image was a modern building with totally covered by reflecting façade. But history never leave anything without its impression. Alongside was an ancient church building leaving an perfect blend of future and past within the same frame. Loved it." Winner - Best Metro/Urban (ISSS)

  • (RIGHT, below) Soon Ong, 'Not Studying Here!' - Oxford Summer Program; Venice, Italy: "This photo was taken at Libreria Acqua Alta, a bookstore in Venice, Italy. This peculiar bookstore keeps its books in boats and bathtubs to prevent them from being damaged by Venice's constant flooding. A tall stack of books at the back of the store is a great place for photo opportunities." Winner - Best Ramblin' Abroad (ISSS)

It was so spectacular that I almost forgot to click this image.” Winner - Best Cultural Experience (ISSS)
