McNick Photo Club holds annual photo contest

Every year the McNick Photo Club holds a photography contest for the entire school body and faculty. This year the contest was held in the art gallery in the library from Monday, April 25 until the winners were announced on May 4.

The club, moderated by photo teacher Rebecca Curran, is open to all students. Led this year by co-presidents seniors Brynna Maxey and Gillian Tierney, they hold the annual photo contest, they take photos at school events, and this year they attended a photo exhibit at the Cincinnati Art Museum. “Photo club hopes to allow those students who do not take photography to be able to express their interests,” said Maxey.

The four categories of the contest were Photo 1, Photo 2/AP, General Submission for any student not in photography, and Teacher/Staff Submission. Students in Photo 1 could only submit black and white photos while students in Photo 2/AP could submit black and white or digital photos. The price of admission was $2 and the first place winner in each category won $15 while second place won $10.

The 2016 winners were decided by votes from teachers. The General Submission first place was freshman Madi Boeckman and second place was junior Kyrsten Payne. The winners of Photo 1 were junior Vanessa Bayliss first place and junior Cameron Cheevers won second place. AP Photo and Photo 2 winners were senior Caleb Brunner first place and senior Jarrod Roetenberger won second. The winners of the faculty/staff category were first place Mrs. Katie Caster and second place Mrs. Cat Lest.

Any student interested in getting involved in photo club next year should see Curran. Meetings are held once a month before and after school. “People should get involved in photo club since it lets them show their creativity even if they aren’t in the class,” Tierney said.
