2013 Teen Photo Contest Results

The results of the 2013 2nd Annual Teen Photo International Photography Contest are in! We received hundreds of submissions from over 16 different countries across the globe. Teens and young adults aged 16 through 22 submitted photographs in two separate divisions. Our judges, Miriam Leuchter from Pop Photo and Vaughn Wallace from TIME Magazine’s Lightbox evaluated entries and chose two honorable mentions, a third place, second place, and first place entry from each division. One overall grand prize was awarded.

Our sponsors included National Geographic Student Expeditions, Custom SLR, Peak Design, Mindshift Gear, Digital Photo Academy, Trigger Happy, and Adobe. All proceeds benefitted the Josephine Herrick Project previously known as Rehabilitation through Photography.
