The winners of the 75th Anniversary Photo Contest have been selected and are now on display in the Bronco Student Center art gallery.
The contest asked for the best photos representing Cal Poly Pomona. More than 500 entries were received, and the images show off the beauty of the natural landscape, the excitement of college life, unique architecture, and of course, the many animals that live on campus.
To view the winning entries, visit PolyCentric’s Flickr page.
A panel of faculty and staff judges reviewed all the entries and selected the top 15 photographs for the exhibit, which will be on display in the BSC through Feb. 10. Judges included professors Wayne Rowe and Lorena Turner; university photographer Tom Zasadzinski; Ani Markarian, graphic designer, Michelle Magcalas, online support specialist; and Esther Chou Tanaka, senior communications specialist.
“I was impressed with the creativity of everyone who entered the contest,” Zasadzinski says. “Several times, I saw a side of Cal Poly Pomona that I had yet to experience.”
Ani Markarian adds: “It’s great to see so many students, faculty and staff participating in the competition. They took time from their daily routines to look at their environment in a different way and capture a singular moment.”
In January, the campus community can vote online for their favorite photograph from the exhibit. The top three fan favorite photos will each win a $50 Bronco Bucks gift card. Voting will be through Facebook, and each person can cast one vote a day.
