HSLDA is pleased to announce the winners of its 9th annual Photography Contest!
Congratulates to the winners and finalists, as well as to the many other students whose imaginative photos delighted, entertained, and moved us!
Students from across the country were invited to submit photographs following themes based on the students’ ages. There were many wonderful, creative photos submitted in each category, and HSLDA congratulates all of the students on such beautiful entries! We thank each and every student for their contribution to making this contest so successful.
View the winning photos below, accompanied by thoughts from some of the photographers.
Quality Control Note: The photos displayed here are scans of the original winning photographs. The scanning may distort some of the original color and clarity, occasionally making it seem like certain photos may have undergone editing techniques beyond those permitted in the contest rules (cropping and changes in brightness, contrast, and color, applied to the photo as a whole). The judging panel carefully examined each photo and if necessary investigated how photos were taken to ensure that these photos adhere to the rules stated in the contest guidelines. If you have any questions, please contact the Contest Coordinator at Contests@hslda.org.
