CELEBRATION

OF YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHERS

GRADES 6-12

ASAP!’s annual Celebration of Young Photographers provides students in grades 6-12 the opportunity to participate in a large scale professional art exhibition and juried show. A panel of professional photographers selects 60 photos to be included in a unique exhibition. The top four photographers are recognized for their outstanding work and receive the Dylan’s Wings Photography Award and a special prize.

This event is FREE and open to the public and all photographs are available for purchase. We look forward each year to celebrating Connecticut’s talented photographers, providing creative opportunities, and helping to build a community of support around our emerging young artists. Submission information is announced each spring.
