iSNAP is an annual BYS-run photography competition which supports emerging photography artists. This year, the theme was STREET, which was open to loose interpretation.
The competition was facilitated by Byron-born-and-bred photographic artist, Yani Clarke, who explores people living on the edge of society, specifically, those experiencing personal hardship, addiction and mental illness. Clarke has been recognised for her commitment to her work, with her 3rd consecutive nomination for the World Press Photo Joop Swart Masterclass, one of the most prestigious photojournalism awards
Clarke facilitated the iSNAP photography competition for young people aged between 12—18 years in the Northern Rivers Region to celebrate National Youth Week.
Entrants were encouraged to interpret the theme STREET loosely. Selected images were exhibited at the YAC, Tully's Cafe and the Byron Bay Brewery.
Clarke is committed to supporting young people through photography. She sees the medium as a powerful method of exploring and understanding ones-self through personal inquiry into everyday life.
