The Sunny 16 Camera Club is teaming up with SKyPAC to bring Bowling Green its first-ever area high school photographic event. We are reaching out to city and county high school students in Warren and its surrounding counties (Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Logan and Simpson) to find out who the REAL photographers are.

We will begin accepting online entries July 1, with an entry deadline of August 15. Contest details are included in this packet. There is no entry fee.

There are four contest categories with cash prizes in each, including a $300 Best of Show.

This is a juried competition with a panel of four jurors from various backgrounds deciding First, Second, Third and Merit winners in each category as well as Best of Show. Winners will be printed by Sunny 16 and displayed in the Children’s Gallery at SKyPAC in Bowling Green.
