Picture Memphis ‘n Summer

Last year, eight students were given disposable cameras for the Memphis: Through the Lens of a New Generation photography competition. Each camera had 27 shots. The photos were opportunities to capture the beauty of the City of Memphis in pictures that are now on exhibit in Mayor Wharton’s Office.

This year, the City of Memphis Office of Youth Services and the Memphis Tourism Foundation have partnered to offer Picture Memphis ‘n Summer, a summer youth photography and journalism competition for emerging ninth graders.

Twenty-five applicants will be selected to participate in a week-long photography and journalism camp complete with field trips, exposure to award- winning industry professionals and free lunches.

With the click of a digital camera, here is your chance to show the world what interesting things you see in your city.

Sign up for Picture Memphis ‘n Summer to learn photography and journalism. Travel about Memphis, take pictures and present your best photos to be judged.

Compete for a chance to win a digital camera, cash prizes, a chance to attend the Scripps Howard sponsored Teen Appeal Camp at the University of Memphis for free and more.

Up-and-coming ninth-graders that wish to participate must fill out an application form online at http://picturememphisnsummer.weebly.com/ and attach a short essay explaining why you are interested in photography and/or journalism.

Get your parent’s permission. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.

For more information, call (901) 636-6202 and ask for Picture Memphis ‘n Summer.
