The After School Arts Program in Washington, which serves northwest Connecticut, is accepting submissions for its third annual Celebration of Young Photographers.

Submissions may be emailed to on or before Monday, Oct. 21.

Students in grades three to 12 are invited to submit photographs reflecting on their interpretation of this year's theme, which aligns with the 50th year anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I have a Dream" speech.

Photographs should answer the question, "In what ways do you see your dreams of freedom, courage or kindness manifested in your world today?"

A panel of judges will select the best photographs to be exhibited in a professional gallery, where participants will be recognized for their work.

The jury is composed of professional photographers and artists.

A gift will be awarded to one participant each from grades three to five, six to eight and nine to 12.

ASAP will notify participants whose work has been selected for the exhibit.

ASAP will be responsible for printing and framing the artwork, which will be for sale; proceeds will benefit ASAP programs.

For more information and specifics on photo format, visit or call 860-868-0740.
