Updated: Oct 31, 2023

GREENSBORO, N.C. - The national trade association for school photography and yearbooks, School Photographers of America (SPOA), announced their spring 2023 Student Photo Contest Grand Champions.

Middle and high school students all over the country submitted entries for the three different categories: Student Life, Sport, and Creative. These categories tend to represent the top categories used in high school yearbooks today. With the advancement in digital technology and popularity of smart phone cameras, students are learning at an early age the art and craft of photography.

"We are seeing some incredible photographs this year. I am stunned at the level of quality and art these students are creating," says David Crandall, executive director of SPOA. "Seeing students have a passion for photography in high school is incredible for our industry and many others. Having a partner like Sony reward these students with brand new Sony camera kits is amazing and shows their vested interest and investment into education and future professional photographers."

The following students were awarded national champion and received a letter of recognition along with a new Sony A7c camera kit:

· Frank Novak of Amery High School in Wisconsin — Student Life category

· Abby Gedville of Lakes Community High School in Illinois — Sports category

· Dyllan Kolinen of Westminster Christian School in Illinois — Creative category

The winners' school administrators were notified and had the opportunity to surprise the students and to honor their achievement.
