2019 Student Competition Finalists

Congratulations to the finalists in the 2019 Student Photography Contest. Well done! The finalists’ ten images are below.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this contest a success. If you would like to participate in next year’s contest as a student or, if you’re an educator who can spread the word, please visit our student competition page to get all the details.

Many thanks to our judges: Laurie Excell, Randy Sanger and Max Waugh.



The student contest grand prize is named for our late friend, Bill Prosser. A volunteer for over twenty years at McLean High School’s photography program, a founder and longtime member of the McLean Photography Club, and a leader and longtime member of the Northern Virginia Photographic Society, Bill was a great photographer. We invite you to view the following three-minute video tribute to Bill, with images of his work. Thanks to George Albright of the McLean Photo Club for producing it.
