Posted: 16 May, 2020
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Athlone Institute of Technology (AIT) managed to keep its annual international student photography competition alive. The theme of the event was to“capture a moment during their time in Ireland” in a photograph.
The 2020 winners are (shown in order below):
- Margot Fautrat from France – “Sunset in Sligo – Rosses Point Beach”
- Thibault Conte from Belgium – “Temple Bar at Christmas”
- Ashima Chawla from India – “Friends on Tour”
Aileen Kilroy-Glynn, Technical Officer, at AIT Design Department judged the entries and commented, “I really enjoyed judging the photos from our international students again this year. The standard was very high, so coming to a final decision was difficult. I have chosen these images because I feel they give a very good mix of special moments the international students captured while here in Ireland”.
Mary Simpson, Director of International Relations added, “As the academic year concludes and students finish online assessments, we would like to thank our international students for choosing AIT for academic study. Some are getting ready to travel home and we would like to wish all a safe journey and for those in final year of their programme, we wish you well as you embark on further study or start your careers”.
