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.
