This annual showcase of work by students enrolled in PRC Institutional Member schools demonstrates the breadth of Boston’s photographic education community. View the creative talents of tomorrow on display today, and gain an appreciation for the diversity of young, contemporary photographic visions (and the remarkable range of academic programs supporting them) that surround the PRC.

Juror Neal Rantoul selected five students to receive certificates from this year's sponsors, Mac-on-Campus and X-rite. The PRC staff selected the winner for the Image Award, whose photograph is used on all marketing materials and promotion for the exhibition. Congratuations to all of this year's award recipients!
