|Winning photograph of the 2012 Youth Photography Contest – Lauren Ng.|
We are inviting Junior and High School students (Grades 7-12) to showcase their photography talent. The photography contest encourages students to consider the environmental community that surrounds them and to take action to protect it.
Tell your story through your lens and have a chance to win a GroPro Camera, a Tri-pod and more.
Over fifty photos were submitted by Calgary students in the 2012 contest. “The images captured by these young photographers make strong environmental statements about how they perceive the world,” explains Natalie Young, contest judge. “The artistic quality and creativity this year was truly remarkable.”
This year’s themes include:
- cradle to cradle
- the story of stuff
- you are what you eat
- photo DJ (mix it up!)
The Mayor’s Environment Expo is a fun educational interactive event for youth, aimed at creating environmental stewards for Calgary. The 2013 Expo takes place June 4-6 at the Municipal Building.
