“Waiting for Breakfast” Maria Zurlo Grade 12 Teacher: Kari Zurlo Autumn's Promise Homeschool Schuyler Falls, NY Juror Comments: This photograph was truly the best in show, the composition, the exposure, and the framing are all excellent. It feels as if the viewer is witnessing a wonderfully serene moment in the heart of the Adirondacks. The natural vignette Maria captures draws our eye inward to the crown jewel of the scene - the heron waiting patiently for its next minnow

“Misty Morning Mushroom” Jeff Wang Grade 9 Teacher: Sierra Grennan Juror Comments: I love Jeff’s interpretation of life in the Adirondacks. The tiny macro world that the photographer captures makes me think of how important even the smallest parts of our broader ecosystem are to the circle of life. The way the light illuminates the spider web is stunning and reminds me of the poetry of Mary Oliver. This photo is a work of art! North Country School Lake Placid, NY

“These photographs reflect on many significant themes – from the landscape to relationships, from the shifting of seasons and the inevitability of time, to identity and self…Each of you has shown us something unique, that, while captured within twenty-four hours in the Adirondacks, extends to cities and towns beyond, and opens up new ways to think about the world in which we live.”    — a past juror of 24 Hours   

 

24 Hours:  A Photographic Interpretation of Life in the Adirondacks is a contest for high school students in public and private  schools within the Adirondack Park.  2021-2022 will be the thirteenth year of this program, which draws entries from throughout the region. Students are invited to submit two photographs taken during any specified hour or hours of the day, and are encouraged to move their view beyond traditional landscape subjects – though they also qualify for submission – to  subjects that relate to their own daily lives.

From the several hundred submissions received, about 20 “winning” photographs are selected by a juror who is either a professional photographer or a curator working with the genre of art photography.  The juror also gives personal feedback to the winning photographers.  Past jurors have included professional landscape photographer John Di Giacomo and Kate Menconeri, former Chief Curator at the Center for Photography Woodstock.  The selected photographs are exhibited at selected venues (libraries, art centers, community centers) within the Park and on the LPI website page devoted to the 24 Hours Exhibition. This years selected venues are TBD

In September 2021, complete contest guidelines and a related poster were be sent to all high schools within the Adirondack Park.  Students may submit two photographs, via computer or mail, that were taken during a specific hour or specific hours of the day or night. Each photo must be accompanied by a brief 50-150 word description of when, where, and why the artist chose to photograph that particular scene or subject.  The deadline for submissions is  January 31, 2022.  Juror’s decision and winning photographs will be announced by the end of  March 2022.
