Contest seeks young people’s photo skills
Are you parenting a budding Edward Steichen or Annie Leibovitz?
The Photographic Society of Chattanooga is accepting submissions for its 9th annual Youth Photography Showcase through Feb. 28. Designed to attract a younger audience to the world of photography, organizers say the goal of the showcase is to “highlight outstanding photographs from high school age students in grades 9-12 in public, private and home schools, as well as in youth groups.”
Interested students may submit up to eight images in each of the two divisions, digital and print. Within each division are six categories: Architecture, People/Animals, Scapes, Photojournalism, Color Photographer’s Choice, and Monochrome Photographer’s Choice.
All images must be submitted by Feb. 28 at 2 p.m. at St. John United Methodist Church.
Time for the young ones to forget selfies and turn their shutterbug skills on the world.
