MANHATTAN -- Students in Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning & Design have been recognized for their skills as photographers through the college's annual photography competition.
The competition was open to all students in the college, also called APDesign, and 39 entries were received. Nine entries were chosen by a jury to receive recognition. Thomas A. Tyler, a 1974 Kansas State University architecture graduate, and his firm, Answers Inc., St. Louis, Mo., sponsored the competition's prizes. Best in Show award earned $300; first place $100; second place, $50; and $25 for third.
"I enjoy seeing the students turn their critical eye to the world around them every year. These images show their ability to discern beauty in diverse places, scales and subject matter," said Tim de Noble, APDesign dean.
All of the entries will be on exhibit in Chang Gallery at Kansas State University's Seaton Hall until Jan. 19, 2014.
