JUDGING CRITERIA

What are the judges looking for?

// STORYTELLING
The photo should tell a story relevant to the high school, junior high or middle school experience.

// QUALITY
Winning photos are free of problems with exposure, sharpness or noise.

// SHOWSTOPPERS
Judges will be stopped by powerful images. Look for pictures with good actions, reactions and emotions, interesting lighting, peak action, unusual and different situations and storytelling moments.

// ORIGINALITY
Photos that are only slightly different from previous winners won't be chosen.

// THOUGHTFULNESS
Sending multiple copies of the same image or similar images is not a successful technique. Send us your single best image of a subject. Crop your photo for maximum impact before submitting.
