At the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) National Competition held in July, Madeline Liverar’s ImageMakers entry, “Dreamscape,” was selected as a National Winner. Every year, ImageMakers National Photography program recognizes hundreds of highly talented young artists at the local, regional and national levels. This past month, regional winners were judged by professionally recognized artists in Atlanta, Georgia. Their decisions were difficult, and her entry was selected as one of only 20 national winners!
