We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2012 International Dissertation Research Fellowship (IDRF) Photo Competition. Fellows from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 IDRF cohorts were invited to submit either a single photo, a self portrait, 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 Fellows from cohorts spanning from 2008 to the present. Click on the thumbnails to see the winning photos enlarged and with their individual captions. Congratulations to our six winners!
