GWC’s Center for Global & Cultural Programs Announces “Going Global Photo Contest” Winner

Global Photo Contest winner

Golden West student Devin Olsen won first place in the Center for Global & Cultural Programs’ “Going Global Photo Contest”, announced on Monday, October 1, 2018. Out of 20 student entries received, Devin was awarded the grand prize – a $150 gift card to the GWC Bookstore – after votes were tallied from students, faculty and staff.

Devin’s photo “Ard-Eaglais Naomh Padraig,” features the inside of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, Ireland.  She captured the image while visiting her sister in September 2017. “I love taking panoramas that feature symmetry,” said Devin, a communications major at GWC. “I was drawn to the high arches and colors, I have an appreciation for the age and beauty of these old buildings.”

This semester will be Devin’s last at GWC, then she plans to attend Cal State Long Beach or Cal State Fullerton in the spring.
