“I can’t express how much winning the Lenscratch Student Prize has meant to me this past year after graduation. From the incredible mentoring, to introductions, to the general exposure, this opportunity has not only made the process of making art more fulfilling, but also very fun. The support and kindness of Aline and everyone at Lenscratch will truly have a lifelong impact, and I have nothing but gratitude and respect for the organization. I cannot recommend enough that students apply for this award.” – Lauren Kelly
