HOW TO ENTER:
Turn a fleeting moment or an intentional composition into a compelling work of art for a chance to earn a scholarship to attend SCAD. If you're a young photographer with a unique point of view and an eye for composition, SCAD wants to get a glimpse through your lens. Whether you're revealing a novel approach to conventional subject matter or capturing a one-of-a-kind image, we want to see you transcend a point-and-click mentality to deliver a truly evocative and interesting image. All themes and styles, from documentary-style shots to surreal images shaped through digital manipulation, are welcome. Your photography should demonstrate that you would thrive as a student at SCAD.
A panel of SCAD faculty will review and evaluate your submitted entry. Three winners will receive SCAD scholarships and be featured in a permanent online exhibit.
SCAD majors to considerStudents who are awarded scholarships to attend SCAD through the SCAD Challenge photography competition may wish to consider a major in photography , advertising or film and television.
