    Emily's Bio:
    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

Photographer’s Forum Contest

Before my winter break, I found a flyer in the CSS photography lab that advertised Photographer’s Forum Magazine’s 2016 College & High School Photography Contest. Out of pure interest, I took down the website in order to explore the opportunity further. I learned that entries cost just several dollars per each submission, and I decided it was worth a shot. I entered three photographs in the contest. Out of my three images, one was chosen as a finalist. The photo chosen was an image I took of a CSS soccer player during an extremely foggy game. There were 100 total finalist images. Apparently there were thousands of entires. I found this to be a great honor, that one of my own photographs could be chosen out of such a vast pool of talented photographer’s work.


The official winners of the contest have not yet been announced, but I am incredibly grateful to have my image chosen as a finalist. Because of this, it will be published in PF Magazine’s ‘Best of College and High School Photography’ printed limited edition book this summer. CSS students have been featured in past books and chosen as finalists in the contests before. I have had such incredible opportunities to learn within the photography program at CSS thus far, and I look forward to continue growing in my skills as a photographer.
