Hey, I'm a rising sophomore who has a passion for photography. I take pride in my work, and I want to get it out into the world. Is there anything I can do turn my passion into something I can put onto my college apps?
I even have my own photography site + an almost blog. I am looking for ways to get it out for people to see and appreciate (I don't have social media).
That just leaves me with competitions. Are there any competitions people know that the average person can enter into (I already know about YoungArts- but that's a pretty prestigious one, RMSP, Sony World Photography Youth Contest).
I would appreciate all the information I can get, so please put whatever that comes to your mind. :)

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
National Geographic Photo Contest- Idk if they host it anymore
National Geographic Student Expeditions- Not a contest but they teach photography all over the world (and they offer scholarships)
https://contest.pdnedu.com/fbcontests/profiletab/StudentPhotoContest2020#contestinfo- Student Photo Contest
Genius Olympiad- They have a photography division
Scholastic Writing and Arts- They also have a photography division https://www.artandwriting.org/
Also, see if your city/county hosts a photo contest and if you can take photography classes at a rec center.
Hope this helps!
If you check out @genzcreates on Instagram or www.gencreates.weebly.com, they have submissions open for a contest, and contributor applications open.
I fully agree w the other user. My only suggestion is that you should make an instagram account for your photography. If you are concerned that either 1) it will mess with your mental state (as most social media accounts do) or 2) you don’t want to see people form your school on insta/compare yourself to them, then make the account anonymous. Insta is a great way to get art or digital media out into the world since it is immensely popular and since everyone is home they are on social media a lot more. Link your portfolio/blog on there as well.
