The City Through Your Eyes Photo Contest

H and B Digital, a camera store in Midtown, is hosting a photography contest this summer called “The City Through Your Eyes,” open to New York City students 14-21 years of age. The contest has been created as an opportunity for students to capture their surroundings and communicate just what living in New York City is all about.

The contest starts now and runs through the end of September. Students are asked to submit one photograph to H and B Digital by September 30th.


All submissions must be in the form of an 8×10-inch print, and must have been taken with a camera. Photographs taken with a cell phone will not be considered. Submissions should be mailed or hand delivered to the following address:

The contest will be judged by a panel of professional photographers.

There will be 10 winners of the contest. One Grand Prize Winner will receive a Canon Rebel T5i kit with an 18-55mm lens (retail value $849). One Second Place and one Third Place winner will each receive a Canon Rebel T5 kit with an 18-55mm lens (retail value $549). Seven runners-up will each receive a Canon PowerShot Elph camera. All winners will also receive a certificate of excellence for participating in the contest.

H and B Digital is also scheduling a photographic exhibition at the end of the competition. This exhibition will display many of the photographs submitted to the contest, and will be open to the public so we can all see “The City Through Your Eyes.”
