Geauga County – Starting July 1, GCPL will launch an annual Photography Contest for teenagers who live or attend school, grades 6 – 12, including graduating class of that year, in Geauga County. The theme for this year’s contest is “Summer Fun.” The submission period for original photography runs from July 1 – 31, with judging to take place from August 1 – 14. Of the ten finalists selected, first place winner will receive a $50 Amazon gift card. Second and third place prizes will also be awarded.
Teens may submit up to three entries but may not win more than one prize. GCPL staff or its guest judges will determine the winners from the finalists. The decision of the library is final. Prizewinners will be notified via email by August 21.
A similar annual photography contest for adults will be introduced later in the year.
“I was absolutely amazed at the talent we saw last fall in our first Teen Photography Contest. If that provides a glimpse of what to expect from our young contestants, I think the judges will be in for a challenge! Good luck to all contestants – you are already a winner in my book!”, says Chris Gumal, Head of Youth Services at the Geauga West Branch.
