NOTICE: Celebrate Rice Photo Contest

A panoramic picture of Rice University’s iconic Lovett Hall won first place in the “Celebrate Rice” photo contest held  by the university’s Susanne M. Glasscock School of Continuing Studies. Neil Martin of West University Place received a $1,000 prize for his entry in the contest, which was held in conjunction with Rice’s centennial year. 

The contest winners were announced April 4 during a campus event at the Brochstein Pavilion.

Lance Carter of Houston won second place and $500 for his baseball-themed photo, “Reckling Park at Sunset”; and Luis Ayala of Houston won third place and $500 for his dynamic and lush photo of campus activity near the Brochstein Pavilion and Rice Memorial Center, “Relaxed Saturday Afternoon.” Martin’s photo also won the Glasscock Prize of $250, awarded for the highest-ranking photograph shot by someone who had taken photography classes through the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies.

Fifty-four entrants submitted more than 220 photos in the contest, which sought outdoor photos that capture the spirit of Rice and that represent parts of campus that inspire each photographer. Entrants included Rice alumni, students, faculty, staff, Continuing Studies photography students and members of the general public. 

Judges for the contest were Peter Brown, photographer, author and an instructor of photography for the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies since 1979; Bevin Bering Dubrowski, executive director of the Houston Center for Photography; and Paul Hester, photographer and lecturer in Rice's Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts. 

Rice University accepted its first students in 1912 and is celebrating 100 years of unconventional wisdom this year. The Rice Centennial Celebration served as co-sponsor of the contest, as did Rice’s Office of Public Affairs and Woodson Research Center at Rice’s Fondren Library.

Rice's Glasscock School of Continuing Studies has offered photography classes since the 1970s as part of its personal development schedule of courses. 

The winning photos, eight honorable mentions and the rest of the entrants will be available for viewing at  www.gscs.rice.edu/photocontest.
