Winners of the Photography as Art Competition

Studio 401 made a strong showing in the Valley Cultural Center's Photography as Art Competition and Exhibition. Five students made it into the top 25 images and were included in the exhibit. Additionally, Studio 401 had two winners including 1st place!

Congratulations to Natalie Aguilar who took 1st place in the show. The judges were very enthusiastic about her self-portrait made entirely of auto-biographical text. Natalie portrayed a range of emotions with gentle tonal transitions as well as bold contrasts of color and typography. For her efforts, Natalie was rewarded with a $1000 scholarship, $100 worth of photo developing, a professional lighting kit, a beautiful blue ribbon and a certificate.

Edgardo Renteria's entry was awarded an Honorable Mention. For this, he received a handsome white ribbon and a certificate. His winning artwork shows his love of car culture and cultivation of a grunge aesthetic.
