Long Beach High School junior Jovanna Vicente and sophomore Charles Mandell received awards in the Photographic Federation of Long Island Youth Showcase competition. They were formally honored during a ceremony held on April 2 in Westbury. Jovanna won first place in two categories, and Charles earned a third place honor.

Jovanna’s top distinctions were achieved in the categories of Photojournalism-Prints and People/Animals–Prints for her pieces, “Rizal Boulevard” and “Girl in the Rain.” Charles was recognized in the category of Photojournalism-Digital for his “City Sounds” image.

Both students will now advance to the Photographic Society of America, an international contest.
