Long Beach High School is proud to announce nine distinctions in this year’s juried international competition presented by the Photographic Society of America. More than 738 photos were submitted for judging and Long Beach students achieved three top awards and six acceptances.

Zoe Peebles took first place in the scapes category for “Autumn Skies” and earned an acceptance for another piece, “Freedom Cage.” Sydney Faivre placed second in Color Choice for “Riomaggiore,” and Elizabeth Zielinski earned third place in Architecture for “On the Rocks.” Acceptances were attained by Brenda Marroquin, Alexis Palmer, Morgan Polete, Deina Vicente and Annelise Whelan for their respective photos, “Spotted Take Off,” “Super Jellies,” “Story,” “Graphic City” and “Seagulls.”  

All the prize winners and accepted pieces will be included in the PSA Youth Showcase brochure and would have been displayed at the annual conference, which was unfortunately cancelled as a result of the pandemic.
