Photo submissions must fit the theme for your age category. Read the themes for this year’s contest.
Original photographs only!! No digital manipulation or touchup is allowed except for cropping and adjustments to contrast, hue, saturation, tone, and sharpness.
These techniques must be applied to the image as a whole, not to only certain areas.
In other words, we are more interested in the student's photography skill than in his or her ability to digitally manipulate an image.
All submissions must be suitable for all audiences. HSLDA reserves the right to reject entries that are gratuitously violent, sexually suggestive, vulgar, or otherwise explicitly offensive.
Each student may enter up to 3 different photos per contest.
Each photo requires a separate Entry Fee and online Entry Form submission.

Multiple entry fees may be included on one check.

Why an entry fee? Where do contest profits go?
All contest profits support our charitable program HSLDA Compassion, through which we provide financially struggling families with grants, scholarships, and other educational and legal resources to help them continue homeschooling in hard times.
