“These kids put the judges through torture,” photo contest judge Mike Cram said. “And we loved the work they submitted.”

Cram, Simran Dhillon and I spent 10 hours over two different days trying to decide on winners for the Mountain Youth Photo Contest. We wanted to give awards to all of them.

This show, with all the submissions to the contest, defies clichés of what youth see. The photos reflect a dynamic, contagious energy of visual exploration from mountain youth.

Come to the opening gallery party at the Frazier Park Library on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 5 p.m. You’ll enjoy the play of imagination and creativity in these images from photographers 6 to 18 years of age. They challenge us to be awake to our senses and to expand our awareness of what is beautiful.

Winners will be announced and refreshments served
