Key School Senior's Photo Up for National Award
Zane Anthony also earned an honorable mention. National winners should be announced in mid-March.
Zane Anthony, a senior at The Key School, recently won two photography awards in the 2012 Scholastic and Writing Awards Region-At-Large competition.
He landed a Gold Key award—the highest regional achievement—and an honorable mention for his photography, according to a release. Anthony's photograph, The Hand, placed in the top 10 percent of the northeastern region, earning the Gold Key award.
Another one of his photographs, Face in the Dark, earned him the honorable mention, placing in the top 20 percent of competition.
Winning a Gold Key award means he remains in the running for a national prize. Judging is now under way and national winners should be announced in mid-March, according to the release.
Past winners of the Scholastic and Writing Awards include such notable artists as Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon and Cy Twombly, according to the release. The awards started in 1923.
Anthony went up against students from 11 states in the northeastern region. Students nationwide in grades 7 through 12 submitted 200,000 works of art to the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers this year, competing in categories such as architecture, ceramics and glass, comic art, film, fashion, digital art, photography, dramatic script, memoir, and more, according to the release.
