 "The meaningful images on exhibit reveal the humanity of these proud photographers," states Lighthouse ArtCenter’s Curator, Janeen Mason.  

ImageMakers is a national photography contest for Club members ages 6 - 18. The year-round program encourages members to learn and practice black-and-white, color, digital and alternative process photography. The competition yields local, regional, and national winners who compete in the categories of Culture and Tradition, Portraits, Nature and Surroundings, Fashion and Style, and Editing and Filter. The photographs are displayed at local and regional exhibits around the world.  

"As an organization, we are extremely proud of the art our members produce and the local and national recognition they receive. They are talented young artists emerging from Palm Beach County, and their perspectives and voice are significant," said Cultural Arts Program Manager Casandra Tanenbaum. "Our members deeply appreciate the opportunity photography provides them to share a glimpse of their community and unique, individual aesthetic."  

Six members of Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County have been named winners in the Southeast Regional ImageMakers Competition, including Riley S. & Brielle M. from the Delray Beach Boys & Girls Club, Tvare S. & Paradise R. from the Marjorie S. Fisher Boys & Girls Club, and Z'myra B. & Ayanna G. from the Smith & Moore Family Teen Center. They will be representing the entire Southeast region in the National Competition.  

Last year Smith & Moore Family Teen Center member Ayanna G. was awarded the ImageMakers Best in Show award, the top national honor. Ayanna is again running for a national award this year with her photo "The Seed of Intention."
