SDABJ Photo Contest winners

At the SDABJ’s scholarship reception Friday, three photos were chosen by local professional photographers as part of our first photo contest. We didn’t get as many submissions as we wanted to, but we were given the opportunity to honor the work of two young photographers.

Shannon Edwards, who won first and second place honors, is a 22-year-old student now interning at KUSI News, and Katelyn Griffin is a 10th grader at the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts.

$150, $100 and $50 gift certificates provided by our sponsor George’s Camera, were given to first, second and third place winners respectively.

Thanks to all photographers who submitted photos as well as contest judges David Poller, David Brooks and Khari Johnson

If we could just get him to smile! My sister and I want to know why Black San Diego is full of great big brothers who refuse to get caught on camera smiling! Our big brother is such a great role model – he works as a tutor with middle and high school students. He leads a weekly lunch group to encourage middle school boys who are on the verge of making better choices and he tutors every weekend in Saturday Academy. He is great and there are so many great big brothers in Black San Diego who just won’t get caught smiling. This photo is just another attempt.
