Berlin teen’s photography getting noticed

Berlin High School sophomore Madelyn Lazzara had two of her photographs selected for inclusion among the Top 60 entries in ASAP!’s annual Celebration of Young Photographers contest.

Lazzara’s photos, The Space Between Us, and 6 Feet Space, will be featured at a Nov. 14 exhibition at Bryan Memorial Town Hall in Washington Depot, Conn.

Lazzara is a repeat honoree. In the 2020 contest, another one of her photos was a Top 60 selection.

ASAP!’s annual Celebration of Young Photographers provides students in grades 6 through 12 the opportunity to participate in a large-scale professional art exhibition and juried show. A panel of professional photographers selects 60 photos to be included in a unique exhibition.

The top four photographers are recognized for their outstanding work. In addition, a middle school and high school photographer will receive the Dylan’s Wings Photography Award, which recognizes photographers whose pieces brilliantly embody the 2021 theme: Space.

ASAP! is a cultural arts organization out of Northwestern Connecticut whose mission is to foster creative, hands-on learning through the arts. Visit
