Youth Photography Showcase

In order to get young people involved in photography, the Photographic Society of Chattanooga annually sponsors the Youth Photography Showcase (YPS) for students in grades 9-12. The goal is to highlight outstanding photographs from high school age students from public, private, and home schools as well as youth groups. This is an excellent opportunity for students to share their work across all boundaries and receive recognition for their efforts.

The 2018 Youth Photography Showcase (in its 12th year) opens on January 15, and closes on February 24, 2018

For 2018, there are six categories:
1. Architecture
2. People/Animals
3. Scapes
4. Photojournalism
5. Color Photographer’s Choice or Creative
6. Monochrome Photographer’s Choice or Creative

There are two divisions: Digital and Prints, and students may enter up to eight images in each division.
