Faculty and Staff Winners in UA FotoCat Contest
Three University of Arizona employees were named winners in a contest that invited amateur photographers to point, shoot and submit their best pictures of campus.
UA faculty and staff won three of six categories with their photo entries in the UA FotoCat Contest, a joint project of the UA's Office of External Relations and the Arizona Daily Star.
Gauri Salvi's image "Student Union" won in the UA Alumni Photographers category. She graduated with a double bachelor's degree in psychology and studio art in 2006. Salvi tutors students with learning and attention challenges at the UA's Strategic Alternative Learning Techniques, or S.A.L.T., Center. She raises funds for schools and charities in India by donating a portion of her photo image sales.
Ed de Steiguer, an author and professor at the UA's School of Natural Resources, teaches and conducts research on public lands in the western United States. De Steigeur is writing a book on mustang horses, "Wild Horses of the West," for the UA Press. His photo, "YoYo at Spring Fling," won the Events on Campus category.
Abigail Sorg won the Campus Scenery category with "Optics Building." Sorg schedules courses and events as a senior office specialist in the Office of the Registrar's room and course scheduling department.
Other categories in the contest were: Wildcat Fans at Arizona Athletics Events, Families on UA Campus, and Students-Campus Life. The six winning images can be downloaded and used for University-related purposes by anyone with a UA NetID by visiting the RB Stock area of the Red Bar CafÃ© and looking in the Campus Photos section.
