We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2010 International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) Photo Competition. Fellows from the 2008 and 2009 IDRF cohorts were invited to submit either a single photo or a photo essay (consisting of no more than five photos) conveying a sense of their IDRF-funded research and experience abroad. Two winners in each category were selected – one by the SSRC Fellowships Office and the other by the 2008 and 2009 fellows themselves. Click on the thumbnails to see the winning single photos and photo essays enlarged and with their individual captions. Congratulations to our four winners!
