NJ 4-H Photo Corps

For More Info

Ellen Williams:
The NJ 4-H Photo Corps is a project where 4-H members (grades 4-13) can learn photography from experienced photographers as they take pictures each month.

How does it work?

Each month there will be a different theme or topic to explore through photography. You will take a picture based on the theme and submit it to the 4-H Photo Corps website. Experienced photographers (juror/mentors) will evaluate your photo and share tips to help you take better pictures.

Your photo will be posted along with those from other Photo Corps members on the NJ 4-H Facebook page along with a gallery on the NJ 4-H Flickr site. When Covid restrictions allow, Photo Corps photos will be displayed in public venues.


The juror/mentors will make their selections for the top photos each month.


Each month, there will receive a different photography theme. Think about how your photograph would represent this month's theme. You can choose indoor or outdoor photos related to the monthly theme. Entries can be actual images, fantasy images, or a photojournalistic photo making a statement, about the monthly theme. Your imagination will create your own unique photograph!
