• Summer Photo Contest

  • The New School Alumni Summer Photo Contest, a summer tradition, opens on July 1, 2016. Over the years, hundreds of alumni from around the world have shown us a vast and wonderful spectrum of photos telling intriguing stories of travel, home, relationships, and more. Stay tuned for details of this year's contest.

    The 2015 Summer Photo Contest called for photos on the theme of color. Of the 20 finalists whose photos were chosen by MFA Photography director James Ramer, three photos were selected as the winners. In addition, one photo was selected as the "New School Choice," receiving the most combined “Likes” on Facebook and Instagram.
