La Jolla Historical Society hosts its first student photo contest

Attention young shutterbugs: The La Jolla Historical Society has launched a photography contest for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The assignment is to capture exciting images of La Jolla in the categories of Architecture, Natural Landscape, and People.

The contest is intended to encourage students in La Jolla-area schools to gain a better appreciation of their historic community through the camera lens. Students can join the contest by taking photos of La Jolla’s historic structures, natural environment, or related subject matter that symbolize the rich heritage and character of La Jolla.

There is no fee and photo submissions (one entry per student) will be accepted now through March 31. Entry forms and parent/teacher waivers may be downloaded at

Entries must be submitted by teachers in participating schools in electronic format in minimum 350 dpi in JPEG, TIFF or PDF in either black & white or color; no altering allowed using image manipulation software.

For a list of contest rules, visit, or e-mail:

For more information, contact project manager, Kristina Gibbons at (858) 459-5335.

Selected photos will be on display on a rotating basis in the historic Wisteria Cottage from Dec. 1, 2010 to May 31, 2011. Winners will be announced at the society’s annual Members Meeting on April 25, 2011.
