Surterre Properties, an Orange County real estate firm with offices in San Clemente and Dana Point, has announced the launch of their new photography scholarship contest for local high school students.

Amateur high school photographers are invited to submit photos depicting the best of Orange County in three categories: natural historical and cultural sites and landmarks, scenic vistas and landscapes and night skies.

The grand prize winner will receive a $500 scholarship, second place $250 and third $100.

Photos must be of nature and will be judged on originality, artistic composition, technical quality and photographic technique. Images must be natural looking—not digitally altered or manipulated beyond reality—in color and the original work and property of the contestant. Photographers may enter a maximum of three photographs.

Photos must be taken between Jan. 1 and April 30 and entries will be accepted from May 1 through May 17. Winners will be announced online by June 1.
More information, including a full list of rules and technical specifications for photo size and resolution can be found online at
