Gloucester library announces teen photo contest

Gloucester County Public Library has announced its teen photography contest, where students in ninth through 12th grades are encouraged to take a creative snapshot based on the theme, “where I like to read.”

“I always liked doing creative programs,” said John Ayers, library technician service specialist.

Years ago, Ayers used to run a teen film contest. The teen photography contest is a way to get teenagers involved in a creative contest again.

The deadline to submit photos is April 19. Entrants are asked to email their photos to and include their full name, grade level, contact phone number and title of their photo.

An awards ceremony will be held at the main library Main Street Center, on April 27 at 2 p.m. First place will win $250, second place will win $75 and third place will receive $25.

Submissions will be judged on creativity and uniqueness.
