Youth In Focus – Contest and Fundraiser

Some of us in TPS might be interested in this organization. Great program for young photographers.


Join us in a new way to connect with Youth in Focus! Now in our 26th year, we’ve been busy creating a new mission statement and values. We invite you to participate in creating photographic interpretations of our newly drafted values: Equity, Courage and Risk Taking, Growth and Development, Inclusion, and Creativity. Open to all skill levels, from cellphone photographer to seasoned pro.

Entries will be judged by a panel of Youth in Focus students who will choose one winner for each of the five Values from each age group. Winners will be announced on October 15, 2020, at our virtual fall event Mission: In Focus. Your $25 registration fee to Youth in Focus supports continued programming, operations, and equitable arts access for all teens.

Each winner will receive their images professionally framed and either an hour of online photo instruction/portfolio review OR a professional headshot session (if the winner is local to Seattle, WA). Runners up will be included in an online gallery and honored in a virtual awards ceremony at Mission: In Focus, 26th Annual fundraiser on October 15th, 2020.
