Previous Portraits of Learning Winners

2008 | 2007 | 2006 

The deadline for this year's Portraits of Learning contest has passed. Thanks to the thousands of you who entered! Check out the winners in the December issue of Tech & Learning. And be sure to enter next year! 

What: Tech & Learning invites K-12 students to participate in the seventh annual digital photography contest. The competition, open to all K-12 students, challenges you to capture — and share — your unique vision of the world. If you have an artistic side, you also have the option to digitally enhance your photos with your favorite imaging software. The top 4 winners in each grade level (elementary, middle, and high school) win prizes and have their photo featured in the December Awards Issue of Tech & Learning.

How: Enter the best possible photo. Your photo may be submitted "as is" or you can manipulate it using photo editing software. If you do choose to manipulate your photo digitally, submit both the original and the manipulated photo so we can compare. You may enter as many photos as you wish.

Write:
  • A short description of no more than fifty words about how your photograph reflects your point of view.
  • (For manipulated photos only) A description of what kind of software you used and how you manipulated your photo. 

Who Can Submit:
The contest is open to all K-12 students.

Teachers may submit classroom and/or individual photos OR students may submit their own individual photos. If photos are being submitted over the summer, either parents (for young students) or students may submit referencing their grade level and teacher from the recently completed year.

How to Submit:
All Portraits of Learning materials must be submitted electronically — We can only accept .jpg files this year.

Winners: 12 winners will be named, with 1 first place and 3 second place winners in each of the following categories: elementary, middle school, and high school.
