New York State Assemblyman Dean Murray invites all high school students residing in the 3rd Assembly District to take part in his Annual Student Photography Contest. This contest focuses on photographs of community-based events and allows students to showcase their hometowns or schools.
Photographs can consist of town government functions or other public events; a building of some historical significance; or anything that the student feels captures the essence of their community. Entries will be judged by a panel who will look at content, photographic competence, and additional artistic factors.
The winner of this contest, along with their parents or chosen guardian, will be invited to be Assemblyman Murray’s guest in Albany during an upcoming session of the New York State Assembly. The winning student will be given a guided tour of the historic Capitol and allowed access to the Assembly Chamber to take pictures during a live session of the state legislature. There are certificates awarded at a reception for winners, and publicity photographs will be taken with Assemblyman Murray. The top five photographs will be displayed in the State Legislative Building and all entries will be displayed in a local art gallery.
Contest Rules are below.
