WASHINGTON — Submissions are now being accepted for ASAP!’s 10th annual Celebration of Young Photographers.
Students in grades 6-12, including home-schooled students, are invited to submit up to two photographs based on this year’s theme, Quarantined.
ASAP!’s Quarantined theme was selected to inspire students to focus on images that represent their unique perspective on this unprecedented time and frame how they feel about the changes that have been forced upon them to experience.
ASAP! encourages students to capture images that reflect family, identity, politics, community, environment, landscape, friendship or anything else that is relevant to them.
A panel of judges made up of professional artists/photographers will jury the show. In addition to an online exhibition of the selected photographs, a virtual exhibition is planned for Sunday, November 15.
The top four photographers will be given special recognition through the 2020 Dylan’s Wings Photography Award, named for Dylan Hockley, https://www.dylanswingsofchange.org/.
The submission link and guidelines for the event may be found by visiting asap.org/celebration-of-young-photographers. The deadline for submissions is October 1.
