Congratulations to all the 2022 Youth Photographic Award and Short Film winners!

This year’s competition had 173 photographic entries and 21 short films entries from local high school students.

Judges, photographer Hugh Stewart (photographs) and artist and photographer Lulu Pinkus (short films) found the variety and scope of the entries to be both entertaining and thought provoking.

Short Film judge Lulu Pinkus comments on the 2022 entries: "After years of lockdown, it is exciting to see what has provoked the imaginative eyes and minds of young people, as they headed out into the real world: We experience journeys near, far and wide… both in the mind’s eye and beyond.”
