Sunrise, sunset and camels again feature heavily in the finalists for the 2022 Y2i/UIA Photography Project. The Judges’ Prize went to Eitan Or for his photo “Good Vibes Only”. The People’s Choice Award went to Aiden Kanevsky for his photo “Climbing Masada”.
The 2023 Y2i Impact Event celebrated 2,000 participants in Y2i supported programs. Guests heard from recent and past program participants, parents and educators about the impact their Year 10 Israel trip had on them, their children, the students and their schools over the years.
550 Year 10 and Year 11 students were together for the largest Y2i Day ever. Together they heard from Paralympian Noam Gerhony and StandWithUs’ Charlotte Korchak, participated in fun activities, celebrated the first night of Chanukah and watched the Football World Cup Final.
Entries in the 2019 Y2i/UIA Photography Project covered the country from north to south and the weather from sunny, raining and snowing. The Judges’ Prize went to Dovi Romm for his photo “The Man in the Rain” and Noa Gold won the Social Media Prize for her photo “Holy Sunrise”.
Y2i Day 2019 was the first time that participants from all five Y2i supported programs were together. 320 students heard from Chris Cannan, Australian Ambassador to Israel, and Charlotte Korchak from StandWithUs. The first night of Chanukah was celebrated with Chanukiah lighting, donuts, singing and dancing.
Fun, friends and food were some of the common themes of entries into the 2018 Y2i/UIA Photography Project. Congratulations to Ran Ashkenazi for “Reflection on water of the Dead Sea” which won the Judges’ Prize, Jesse Waller for “Flames of Israel”, the winner of the Donors’ Prize and Jayden Diamond who won the People’s Choice Award for “The Fall of Tyrone”.
