Honorable Mention
This photo was taken in the La Jolla Cove. For me, the cove lights captured during my long exposure capture the participation of the people. The nightlife in the cove was amazing and taking a walk on the beach at night was more exciting than during the day. The cove never slept and I wanted to capture the participation of restaurants, walks, and parties all radiating light.
Honorable Mention
A student seemed interested in the photo I was taking, so I asked if he would like to be included. He stood where I asked and appears to be a silhouette. Asking and participating go together.
Honorable Mention
My image was captured on a field trip to Canon Headquarters. My image relates to the participation aspect because I didn't really like taking photos at the time. My father is a professional photographer and he really wanted me to join the Photography class at my school. I joined for him, even though I don't want to follow in his footsteps. Yet, on this day at Canon HQ, I had access to tons of amazing equipment, and this was the first day I truly participated. I took tons of photos and I liked doing so. I think I participated because to me, participation means that you are fully involved. It means that you are interested and you put your heart into what you're doing. It means that you are involved. That is what participation means to me. I was involved and active on this day. I actually took a passion in what my father had been trying to get me to do for years. I am not the greatest student in my photography class but I feel that I can be myself in the class. Whether I'm in a good or bad attitude. No matter what kind of day I'm having. I took this image of another student in my class named Johnny because he was one of my only friends in the class. I thought that it would be great to capture what the subject's point of view was like. This is because I feel that you are participating when you're the photographer and when you're the subject. I captured the photo on one of the Canon DSLRs that were provided to the students. This image represents just some of the images I captured on that day.

Contest Winner
Participating in the dance of life. I love to do all types of dance. When dancing, I feel fully alive and free. To me this is participating in life to it fullest. I hope this photo shows how joyful dance feels to me. I used a slow shutter speed to capture the spinning motion and panned with her motion to capture the trails of colors.
Honorable Mention
This photo was taken while cruising. As the light danced against the water it was ever-changing. Change brings life and life brings change.
Honorable Mention
This picture was taken on my sister’s 19th birthday. I decided to take this specific picture because a birthday is a celebration of maturity, the more you age the better you handle the curve balls life throws at you. I helped organize the special day where our family went to the park for a photo shoot. To me participation means when you are present at an event that you get invited to and also when you are willing to go somewhere to experience something new. There is a saying “A picture is worth million words” and I completely agree with that. I have become more passionate about photography. Once I figured out how precious it can be for catching a moment that could have been just a memory in mind. I saw a fire of hope in my sister’s eyes when I took this picture. And a smile despite losing three family members right before her birthday. She has maintained to stay strong and smile through her pain. She is smiling a victory after overcoming harsh grief, hard challenges and moving on. My sister goes to college and she is chasing her dreams. Therefore she has inspired me to believe that if you believe you can do something you can with the complement of hard work, discipline and dedication. Break the barriers that try to prevent you from achieving your goals and move on.
Honorable Mention
This is a picture of the JV football team after their first win. What people don’t know is how they got that first win. Throughout the weeks, each player has participated at every single practice and worked hard. That now brings us back to their win. After each game, win or lose, they do a school chant to show their participation and sportsmanship to the game no matter the outcome. In my opinion, hard work and sportsmanship is the definition of participation.
Honorable Mention
My picture shows participation because my friends and family drove two hours to the desert just to participate in celebrating the 2019 New Year with new comings and new opportunities. Another reason this picture shows participation is because these people wanted to participate in the fun.
Honorable Mention
This photo was taken in a turnout of my town's most popular hangout spot; a long windy road that travels up and into the mountains with turnouts sprinkled along the way. We found this beat up punching bag and decided to give him the send off he deserved. Together, with a few friends in the woods, we laid him to rest. And for the hour or so we spent with him, he was one of us.
Honorable Mention
The photo was taken in the girl's gym at school. The team performed at the auditorium and is now performing for our parents. The photograph relates to the team because we participated in a cultural event, and we also participated in a Day of the Dead themed dance routine.
Honorable Mention
The picture is a picture of my family playing a game of Monopoly, with my mom’s hand in the center rolling the dice. On the board are the game pieces with some houses and hotels on favorite areas to make money from. These include my personalized game piece by combining two other pieces. The picture was taken on the table in the TV room of our house, on the table with the most space to play large board games such as Monopoly. It fits into the theme of “Participate” because it is my family coming together to play a game of Monopoly.
