MOPA San Diego Youth Photo Exhibition
The Museum of Photographic Arts San Diego, otherwise known as MOPA, is holding their 10th Anniversary Youth Photo Exhibition! The exhibit theme for 2015 is “Self Portrait“.
Students from Kindergarten through 12th grade, across San Diego County as well as Tijuana, are encouraged to share their self portrait for juried selection. Students may either enter photography or video for their submission. Best of all? It’s FREE to enter!
Full details about the MOPA San Diego Youth Photo Exhibition, including eligibility for submission, can be found on the MOPA Website. Once on the site, you can find further details about submission by clicking on the link next to your desired form of entry, be it digital or by mailing your entry to the museum.
Our 10 year old daughter is very interested in photography, and just may enter a photo or video herself! The photo used above is one she took with a cell phone camera at the San Diego Zoo. I love how her portrait, as well as her baby brother’s are reflected against the glass, along with seeing the face of the orangutan. It combines her love of animals as well as family in one shot, all just by chance.
Submissions for the MOPA San Diego Youth Photo Exhibition must be received by by 11:59pm PST on June 15th, 2015. Artists accepted into the 2015 Youth Photo Exhibition will be notified in late July, and their work will be on view from October 3rd, 2015 – January 24th, 2016. Perhaps we’ll see your child’s submission featured later this year!
