ASAP!’s 13th annual Celebration of Young Photographers is a special exhibition recognizing each year’s top 60 selected photos. At the event, the top four photographs are revealed, and a middle school and high school photographer receive the 2023 Dylan’s Wings Photography Award presented by Ian Hockley, Executive Director of Dylan’s Wings of Change. In addition, there is a Viewer’s Choice Award selected by attendees. These awards recognize photographers whose pieces brilliantly embody the 2023 theme of Curiosity.

ASAP!’s annual Celebration of Young Photographers invites students in grades 6-12 to submit their photographs for a chance to participate in a juried art exhibition. A panel of professional photographers selects 60 photos for this public exhibition, recognizing the top four photos and their photographers for their outstanding and thoughtful work based on the yearly theme.
