CCM Second Annual Photo Contest for High School Students

Winners will be Featured in Exhibition and on Facebook - Posted 9/13/13
High school students with an interest in and passion for photography are encouraged to take part in the Second Annual Photo Contest at County College of Morris (CCM) for a chance to win some great prizes and recognition.

The theme of this year’s contest, sponsored by the CCM Photography Club, is “On the Edge,” which could be a physical edge, something trendy, an unusual technique or a conceptual boundary.

"Students should feel free to interpret the topic any way they feel is appropriate. We’re looking to be surprised by their images,” said Hrvoje Slovenc, professor of photography, who along with Professor Nieves Gruneiro, oversees the contest.

The winning photographs will be exhibited in a show along with the work of CCM students in May 2014 and also will be posted on the CCM Photo Club Competition Facebook page. Winners will be required to submit high-resolution files for the exhibition.

Prizes will be awarded to first-, second- and third-place winners. A Popularity Award also will be presented to the student whose photo gains the most likes on Facebook. Prizes this year include an iPad mini, iPod, gift certificates and camera bags.

The competition is open to all New Jersey high school students and there is no limit on the number of submissions. To be eligible for prizes and the exhibition, proof of ID and authorship may be required.

Submissions can be entered now through midnight April 5, 2014. To enter online, go to http://www.flickr.com/groups/2260999@N21/. To enter by mail, send prints or digital files to County College of Morris, Photography Department, DH 201, 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph, NJ 07869-2086.
