EdFund, provider of student loan guarantee services under the Federal Family Education Loan Program, has announced the winners of its first-ever student photography contest. The 12 winning student photographers each received a $1,000 prize and had their photo entry published in the company's 2002 calendar.

A calendar featuring key dates and information about financial aid-related events is produced annually. The 2002 edition showcases campus life through the evocative, compelling photographs submitted by a broad cross-section of students.

The photos, ranging from architecture to sports and portraits of individuals and groups, not only display artistic vision but convey an encompassing sense of today's college experience. The winners, six men and six women ranging in age from 20 to 55, attend public and private colleges, universities and proprietary schools.

When the contest was announced last spring, 189 photographs from 86 students. During the summer, a panel of five individuals, including a current student, an owner of a graphic design firm, a photography instructor, a professional photographer and Dana Callihan, vice president of external relations, judged the entries.
