Grades 7 – 12

A photograph may be submitted in one of two categories:

  • BEST FEATURE PHOTO: A picture of a “found situation” that features strong human interest element, or a fresh view of an everyday scene. A picture that uses humor or focuses on the lighter side of life is well suited for this category.
  • BEST NEWS PHOTO: Photo of organized events such as general meetings, promotional events and staged coverage opportunities. OR an event where the photographer does not have the time to plan, but must react on instinct, adrenaline, and news judgment.

If your photo is an image of a person, please submit a Photo Consent form.

LNP MEDIA GROUP, Inc. will need a digital image of all winning photographs for publication.

Photos are to be 4 x 6 inch dimensions.
