Past Event

Washington State High School Photography Exhibition

Dec 7 2023 – Jan 21 2024

Seattle Asian Art Museum

Lower Lobby

10 AM – 5 PM

This annual exhibition features twenty-seven photographs selected from over four thousand entries submitted by high school photography students from Washington state. It is the largest event of its kind in the United States. Since 1995, we have partnered with the Seattle Art Museum to provide a prestigious public platform for student photography.

Our 2023 selection committee of Amanda Ringstad, Barry Wong and Randall Partin gathered on May 6th at Inglemoor High School to view entries from over thirteen hundred students representing sixty-six high schools. Best in Show was awarded to Margaret Stone of Mount Si High School. A huge thanks to our selection committee for their time and expertise, and to Wallingford Frame Central for expertly preparing the photographs for exhibit.

Sponsors and supporters of this event include Kenmore Camera, Frame Central, Canon, Jones Soda and the Seattle Art Museum. Visit to see a library of past exhibits. Click on the WSHSPC logo at the bottom of their homepage.
