Take Your Shot Teen Photo Contest

The Contest

Have you ever dreamed of being a professional photographer?  Or maybe you just want to know what it feels like to be one for an evening?  If that sounds like you, then focus in on this:  Lambton County Library and the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery are joining forces for the 10th annual Teen Photo Contest!  The Photography in Canada 1960-2000 exhibition will be featured at the gallery from May 3 to September 8. This collection includes nearly 100 photographs from 71 artists and explores developments in Canadian photography over time.

Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery opens the doors to their Photography in Canada 1960-2000 exhibit on May 3rd, so we are asking the teens of our county to take your best shot and submit it to the contest from May 3rd to June 13!  There are three categories that you can submit to:

  1. The City
  2. The Land
  3. Social commentary

Remember, you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take, so get out there and Take Your Shot!  If you need inspiration, drop by Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery to check out the exhibit!
