Every year The New York Times contests become more and more central to what they do.
Hearing from teenagers around the world on the issues and ideas of the day — whether via essays, editorials, political cartoons, photography, videos, poetry, podcasts or culture reviews — has become an essential part of their mission of “teaching and learning with The New York Times.”
What stereotypes about teenagers do the adults you know seem to hold? How does the media portray people your age — whether you’re called Gen Z, iGen or anything else?
What can you show from your own life, or the lives of those around you, that might help make that portrait more interesting, nuanced, complete or real?
In this years “Show Us Your Generation: A Photo Contest for Teenagers”they invite teenagers to take photographs that depict some aspect of teenage life that you think may be misunderstood, ignored or largely unknown, and, in a short artist’s statement, explain why.
The contest open to anyone 13 to 19 years old, from anywhere in the world
The winning work will be included in their Learning section that will come out in early November.
