Teen Tech Week is when libraries showcase digital resources and services for teens. Solano County Library celebrates Teen Tech Week with a digital photo contest.
This year the theme of our photography contest was “From the Written Page to the Digital Age” in celebration of Teen Tech Week and Solano County Library’s 100 year anniversary.
60 teens from all over Solano County submitted 303 amazing photos to the contest. The contest ran from January 23–March 3.
Photographers from local newspapers Fairfield Republic, Vacaville Reporter and Vallejo Times Herald selected winners for each category. One grand prize winner will receive a digital photo frame to keep.
Editing/Effects: Sabrina Pierantoni (Grand Prize Winner)
The theme 'From the Written Page to the Digital Age, Solano County Library at 100' can be expressed by this photo in the sense of black-and-white to color and in the sense of non-adjusted to digitally manipulated concepts of photography. This encapsulates the advancement of both photography and the written word, and their forms of presentation.
Design: Katie Walker
The strong bold lines that the trees make coming in from the edge of the frame along with the splashes of color with the greens and yellow give the sense of a structured design though design itself is open to interpretation.
Nature/Landscapes: Alicia Cauthen
The symmetry and vivid color made this well composed photograph rise above the rest. A well-balanced photo with nice subject matter will make you want to look at it time and again.
People: Josh Redsun
This is a very nicely handled, softly rendered portrait that uses the fence pattern to both frame her eyes and to emulate a 'lace' pattern that combines with the flower headband to add to the feel.
Winning photographs will be featured at the 100th Anniversary Celebration on
All of the photos submitted to our contest are being displayed inside all 8 of our county libraries, and on Solano County Library’s Facebook and Flickr accounts. Please take a look at all the wonderful submissions.
