ST. CHARLES – John Ardelan of St. Charles, a senior majoring in biology, received an honorable mention in the Augie Abroad photo contest at Augustana College in Rock Island for his photo of the Great Wall of China, entitled “Jinshanling Great Wall at Zhuanduo Pass in China.”

Ardelan’s photo was taken in East Asia during the 2013 fall semester.

Winners were chosen from 140 entries in five categories, and a grand prize was awarded.

For the contest, students submitted photos by category – architecture, Augie students abroad, culture and celebration, daily life, and nature – and three judges reviewed the submissions.

This year’s submissions were from international travel between May 2013 and March 2014.
