The COMPAS (Conversations on Morality, Politics, and Society) program in the OSU Center for Ethics and Human Values is sponsoring a photography contest to explore this year’s COMPAS theme: Sustainability.

Perhaps the greatest cultural, economic, and technological challenge facing modern democracies and global development groups is how to respond to the depletion of natural resources and the effects of climate change. The health of the planet as well as the future shape of human society is at stake, and a photograph can tell these compelling stories like no other medium. A photograph can show us the wonders of our planet that are at stake. A photograph can show us the harsh realities we face as those wonders begin to disappear. Perhaps most importantly, a photograph can show us what we have accomplished and explore solutions to the challenges facing us. In addition to their general aesthetic merit, submissions will be judged on the ways in which the photographs explore issues related to the COMPAS theme.

Contest Judges:
On the evening of October 21, 2015, COMPAS is hosting an awards ceremony for the contest. A selection of top submissions will be on display, and the judges will announce 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards in the following categories: 
  • Ohio State Undergraduate/Graduate Students
  • Ohio State Alumni and Members of the Columbus Community
  • Ohio State Current and Retired Faculty and Staff
Refreshments will be provided.
