UBC Journal of International Affairs

This year’s UBC Journal of International Affairs will have four theme areas: Environment, Human Rights & Welfare, Peace & Security, International Law.

I decided to send in five photos to be considered for the cover of the journal, and I made mock-up previews of what each one might look like as a cover. Do you like them? Or are they too standard, nothing unique/special enough? I’ll find out in January or later whether they accept one of them:

Environment (Singaporean industry contrasted with the natural beauty of the sky)

Environment (Power lines ruining a beautiful view on the East Coast of Australia)

Human Rights/Welfare (A poor hilltribe woman, near the Burmese border in Northern Thailand)

Human Rights/Welfare (An elderly man with a prosthetic leg in the Cambodian countryside, the result of being shot in the 1970s)

Human Rights/Welfare (Three poor young Cambodian girls play in the filthy, barbed-wire-filled area near the Killing Fields outside Phnom Penh)
