Annual Youth Exhibition
Since 2006, MOPA has held an annual juried exhibition showcasing the photographic talents of San Diego youth. Every year, students are encouraged to submit work that responds visually to a particular theme. The winning entries are selected for their originality and artistic interpretation of that year's topic.
2016 Theme: Animals
Inspired by the San Diego Zoo's 100th anniversary, MOPA's 11th Annual Youth Exhibition will focus on the theme of animals.
We encourage all K-12 students in San Diego County and Tijuana to creatively explore the topic of animals - their habitats, their cultural significance, their grace or strength, or how you may identify with them - and to submit their photographic, multi- or mixed-media, or video art for a chance to be part of this community-sourced exhibition!
Submissions accepted January 4, 2016 - May 2, 2016
More info coming soon! View Call for Entries
