Master American photographer Lee Friedlander spent a decade exploring the United States in ordinary rental cars, capturing the unique American landscape in a fascinating series of photographs on view at the Whitney in the exhibition America By Car. Now, Youth Insights Leaders invite you to share your own photographs of America, taken from any form of transportation—car, subway, bus, boat, bicycle, you name it! The Photography En Route contest is open to teens ages 13-19 anywhere in the United States.
Submit your best shot by November 27, 2010 to be eligible to win a brand new Nikon Coolpix L110 digital camera and to have your photograph featured on the Whitney’s website.
Email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photographs should be in jpg format with a maximum file size of 2MB. In the body of your email, please include your full name, age, school, home address, email, phone, and the form of transportation in photograph.
This contest is open to any teen between the ages of 13 and 19 in the United States. Entries must be received by November 27, 2010.
All entries will be reviewed by a panel of teens in the Youth Insights Leaders program and Whitney curatorial staff for the exhibition, Lee Friedlander: America By Car. A selection of winning entries will be published in an online gallery on whitney.org. One grand prize winner will receive a Nikon Coolpix L110 12.1 MP digital camera.
By participating in this contest, you consent to the possible publication of your photograph on whitney.org, the Whitney’s facebook account, and in printed publications. Last names and email addresses of contestants will not be published or shared with any third parties.
