The annual Hunt’s Photo and Video high school photography contest top prize has been won by Everett high school student Amariana Picket whose art teacher is Leah Bordier.

Her stunning photograph (above) took away top honors by the judges at Hunts.

Hunts, of course, is the legendary photography and camera and everything video store in Malden on the Medford line.

For decades, Hunt’s has been the safe harbor in the storm for hundreds of Boston’s most noted photography talents.

In its modern incarnation, it has maintained its excellence as it transited from old style photography, paper and chemicals to the digital age and now into video.

The images for this year’s contest were judged on creativity, composition and content.

Each student enrolled in a photography class was eligible.

Sixteen to 20 final images were displayed in Hunt’s Gallery during the month of April.

Two prizes were awarded for the finalists. The top prize of $250 is given as credits to the high school of the winner.
