Photographs by Cameron University students Glory-Anne Dore and Sarah McNair have been selected for the 36th Annual College & High School Photography Contest sponsored by Photographer’s Forum magazine. More than 14,000 submissions were received for the contest, with only 500 – less than four percent – being selected as finalists. The works will now be judged by a jury comprised of professional photographers who are college-level photography instructors.
“Having photographs selected as finalists in this international photography contest is a significant achievement for these Cameron students,” says Dejan Mraović, Assistant Professor of Art. “This prestigious contest, which accepts submissions from around the world, sets a high standard for photography. Glory-Anne and Sarah are talented photographers, and it is gratifying to see their efforts rewarded.”
Dore, a senior art major, submitted her work “Highway, Oklahoma,” and McNair, a sophomore from Lawton, submitted a photograph titled “Comanche Land.” Both landscapes will be published in “Best of College and High School Photography 2016,” a hard-cover book that will be distributed to university libraries and professors of photography, graphic design and art throughout the country, as well as in the May 2016 issue of Photographer’s Forum. In addition, they will be exhibited at Brooks Institute in Ventura, Calif.
