Falls Church City Public Schools students only have one week left to enter the Bob Morrison Photography and Videography contest. The Falls Church Cable Access Board will award two, $250 annual student prizes in memory of longtime Cable Access Board Member Bob Morrison.
Morrison’s photographs were often showcased in art shows, schools and businesses throughout the City. From athletic events to city festivals, he could often be seen capturing the spirit of The Little City, and he encouraged others to do the same with a still camera, or via video by becoming involved with Falls Church City Television. Morrison was also an avid wildlife photographer, and often donated his time to photograph charitable events, such as the DC Central Kitchen’s annual Food Fight.
Any student in grades K-12 who lives or attends school in the City of Falls Church during the 2009-2010 school year is eligible. This year’s theme is “Falls Church City – My Hometown,” and only appropriate content illustrating the theme will be considered and accepted as an official entry.
Those interested are required to submit a body of work – five photos or a video presentation – that represents the hometown qualities that Mr. Morrison frequently captured in his photographic work. This could include events, landmarks, people, nature and other visual opportunities that represent the best of Falls Church City and the artistic qualities that Morrison captured in his photographs.
Photographers must submit five, unframed images, no larger than 8 x 10 inches. Images may be submitted as prints, or digitally via CD, DVD or email at [email protected] Include student’s name, address, school attended, grade level and phone number with entry. All photographs must be the work of the student submitting the entry. All submissions become the property of FCC-TV and may be used for station promotional purposes.
Videographers must submit a single program or composite presentation (not to exceed 15 minutes). Longer single programs may be edited to 15 minutes representing the videographer’s best segments. Video may be submitted on DVD or VHS tape. Video cases must be labeled with student’s name, address, school attended, grade level and phone number. Each video must be the work of the student submitting the entry. All submissions become the property of FCC-TV and may be used for station promotional purposes.
Students may enter either category or both categories but will be eligible to win in only one category per contest year.
Entries will be judged on adherence to the theme as well as quality (composition, focus, lighting, content) and creativity by a three-person judging panel. All participants will be recognized at the Falls Church Cable Access Corporation (FCCAC) annual meeting on the third Monday in October. The winning entry will be announced at the annual meeting.
All entries must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24. No late entries will be accepted.
