The nine-week contest for Kane County high school students ran from September 26 to November 21, concluding with a reception and gallery display at the Batavia Fine Arts Center on December 7.

Each week of the contest has a theme, and this year the top 10 photos were selected each week. Photos are chosen by the Photography Review Committee at the ROE. Each week received hundreds of entries; the work of Rosary artists were chosen for the top 10 in seven of the nine weeks.
