RANDOLPH, NJ - New Jersey high school students with a passion for photography and a talent for taking good photos have until April 16 to enter the County College of Morris (CCM) Fourth Annual Photo Contest for the chance to win prizes and recognition.

The contest is conducted by the Photo Club at CCM. Again this year, the competition’s sponsor, Unique Photo Superstore in Fairfield, will be providing first-, second- and third-prize gift certificates.

High-school-age photographers are being asked to submit photos on the theme of “Borderlands.” Professor Hrvoje Slovenc, who teaches photography at CCM, explains, “By definition a borderland is an area of overlap between two things. We’re looking for images that visually define a line between two geographic locations, states of minds, emotions or between history and myth, or whatever else our photographers envision.”

Winning photographs, honorable mentions and finalists will be featured in an exhibition also including work by CCM photography students. The exhibit will take place in May in the CCM Art Gallery. Winners will be required to submit high-resolution files for the exhibition and may need to show proof of ID and authorship.

Photo contest participants are encouraged to join the “CCM Photo Club Competition” Facebook page (http://tinyurl.com/ludm5al) to receive news, announcements and vote for the photo that will receive the “Popularity Award” for obtaining the most likes. Voting for the Popularity Award begins at midnight on April 30 and the winner will be announced at the opening of the exhibition.
