Photography, a fascinating blend of art and science, has intrigued people since its inception. The Greater New Braunfels Arts Council (GNBAC) invites all High/Middle School students to participate in our annual "Youth Photo Contest." The contest is overseen by the New Braunfels Photographic Society (NBPS), a member of the GNBAC.
The NBPS was started in September 2011 by seven amateur and professional photographers who wanted to advance their knowledge of photography through fellowship and sharing information and skills. In 2020, the club became a Photographic Society of America (PSA) member.
Today, the NBPS is open to all – admirers of photographic art and avid photographers, amateurs and professionals, students, teachers, the young, and the more mature. The NBPS supports members' efforts to improve their photographic skills with enjoyable monthly club meetings, competitions, programs, and fellowship.
One of the most successful services the NBPS has conducted is running the GNBAC annual "Youth Photography Contest," open to high school and middle students from the greater New Braunfels area.
We have had 85 students enter, representing 25 schools from around the area and home-schooled students with up to $3000 in cash prizes to the students; this amount varies year to year based on donations. The GNBAC and NBPS will sponsor the high school contest winners in PSA's International Youth Photography Showcase Contest.
Your contribution will enable us to support middle and high school students both in school and home school from Bexar, Comal, and Guadalupe counties with youth photography classes, contests, and exhibitions. We are very grateful for your generosity.
