The Kane County Student Photography Contest is a 10-week photography contest for high school students throughout Kane County. The contest is a collaborative effort between the Kane County ROE, Kane Excellence in Education Partnership (KEEP), and Kane County Connects to recognize and celebrate the talent within the art departments in Kane County high schools. This includes the knowledge and support handed down by the instructors, as well as the creativity harnessed by students. Each week, submitted photos will be reviewed by the Photography Review Committee at the Kane County ROE. The top 10 photos will be selected and published in an article on Kane County Connects.
Once the 10-week contest concludes, we host a Student Photography Exhibition where all the weekly winners along with those who participated can be showcased for all to view! We provide refreshments, music and shiny trophies to the 10 weekly winners!
The 2018 contest was held from October 3rd to December 5th with the photo exhibition taking place on December 13th. If you are interested, or have any questions regarding the photo contest, please contact Matthew Muntner at firstname.lastname@example.org or 630-675-4446.
