The 2016 Homeschool Photography Contest is another for the books! We love contests for homeschoolers. Truly. It is so rewarding to see the creative, interesting entries you all send in! What we really love most is the opportunity to share what homeschoolers can do with the world, and we hope that you'll continue to enter the contests we host.
Now for the winners, judged by Wooden Nickel Photography:
"The entries for the Homechool Photography Contest were again exceptional. We have awarded Cole Frechou, 14, First Place overall and in 14-year-olds, with Checkmate and Jazzy Cat. We had to award them as a tie because we couldn’t decide and loved them both, and because Cole created both, takes the win. Great imagination in posing and taking an unusual angle for your creation. Cole had several excellent entries.
"First Place for 10-year-olds goes to Taylor Crenshaw, for the Pups portrait. The use of a black backdrop made your Pups pop and resulted in a very good portrait.
"Second Place for 10-year-olds is being awarded to Amy Chabroux, for her portrait of Ginger. It was a great use of a shallow depth of field, making Ginger become the focus. The Nap Time image was also exceptional.
"Kaylie Owens took second in the 14-year-olds, with her Sleeping Dog photo. Great depth of field, nice shot.
"Jeffrey Hales, 14, sent in an interesting shot of his lizard Gizmo, and takes third place in the 14 age group.
"The assignment was to create a portrait of your pet, and quite honestly, there wasn’t a bad shot in the bunch. You are all winners and you make the job of picking the winner extremely tough. Cole will receive an 11x14 of each of his winning entries, the rest of you will receive an 8x10 of the winning entry. Thanks for entering, we will have another contest in a future issue.
