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. :)
Earn karma by helping others:
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)

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!
