Each year the New York State Media Art Teachers Association, in the Mid-Hudson region, hosts a Media Arts Conference in Westchester New York. The conference is designed for high school students working in the field of media arts: Digital and Darkroom Photography, Computer, Film, and Sound art. Students submit works to be judged for Exemplary Media Awards
To earn an "Exemplary Media Art Award", a student's work must show noteworthy content, a creative approach, attention to composition and a command of craft.
- clarity of vision / personal or social statement and content appropriate for a high school audience
- creativity, inventiveness, originality
- design, image composition
- Craftsmanship, technique as fitting the media e.g. clear sound, lighting, shots, etc.
The Media Arts Show is a unique opportunity for students to exhibit/screen their work and see what their peers are producing.
This year Kingston High School students were honored with 12 Exemplary Awards for Digital and Darkroom Photography, 1 President’s Award for Film and Video and 1 President’s Award for Digital Photography.
