Welcome to a multi-part series sponsored by Sony ImageMakers.

Through Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (BGCA) national partnership with Sony Electronics, Inc., BGCA invited talented young photographers in our Clubs to advance their photography skills through a special opportunity. During the Keystone Conference, registered attendees who demonstrated an interest in photography and a commitment to growing their talent in this art form were invited to apply for the ImageMakers Teen Photo Team. Below are some of the creative works from the Sony ImageMakers Teen Photo Team.

During this photo assignment, the Sony ImageMakers Teen Photo Team focused on the following themes~

 Boys & Girls In the Club and Healthy Lifestyles

This picture was taken during an event that promoted exercise. We had made a major event with dodgeball to allow people to run and exercise. This event promoted exercise not only in our club but into the other branches. We   helped other clubs to have fun and exercise too.
