Contemporary Definition of Family is This Years’ Theme
New Jersey high school students with an eye for photography have until April 15, 2017 to enter the County College of Morris’ Fifth Annual Photo Contest for chance to win prizes and be recognized at a CCM art exhibition.
High-school-age photographers are invited to submit photos representing their definition of family.
“Entries should go beyond the traditional definition of family as by birth or marriage and instead explore a contemporary, personal definition of family, such as friendship, community, nation, global village and beyond,” said Professor Hrvoje Slovenc, who teaches photography at CCM. “Contestants also are encouraged to depict all the good and bad that relationships bring.”
Winning photographs, honorable mentions and finalists will be featured in an exhibition also including work by CCM photography students. The exhibit will take place next May in CCM’s Art and Design gallery. Winners are required to submit high-resolution files for the exhibition and may need to show proof of ID and authorship.
Contestants should join the “CCM Photo Club Competition” Facebook page to receive news and announcements, and to vote for the photo that will receive the Popularity Award by obtaining the most likes. Voting for the Popularity Award begins at midnight on April 23, 2017. All winners will be announced at the opening of the exhibition in the CCM Art and Design Galley.
Last year, the winners and honorable mentions included students from Sparta, Pompton Lakes, Roxbury, Windsor Prep, Watchung Hills, Bridgewater Raritan, Newark Academy, Morris Knolls, Columbia, Mountain Lakes, West Milford and Westfield.
Photos can be submitted now through midnight April 15, 2017. To enter online, visit https://www.flickr.com/groups/[email protected].
