EMS Winter Photo Contest Winner

Thursday, April 2, 2020

The Winter of 2020 did not deliver the usual drama of our region with mounds of white, fluffy snow, the excitement of an oncoming blizzard, or even a snow day. It was grey, dry, and frankly a little dull. But the more than 135 photos submitted by 27 Elementary•Middle School students for this year's Winter Photo Contest were anything but boring. 

This year's EMS winner is Cameron Minster who has submitted photos to the contest for the past four years. Lauri Johnson, EMS faculty member who is the Winter Photo Contest liaison says, "Cameron was very intentional about learning to take photos. He had lots of questions, did some research on perspective and other photography techniques, and was eager to experiment within the medium. I'm so excited for him!"

Photos were reviewed by a jury of faculty and staff representing the EMS, High School, and Administration and were judged on composition, technical skill, and originality. Landmark's Winter Photo Contest has been running for the past seven years and is sponsored by the School's Marketing and Communication Department.
