Maple Ridge teen Warin Rychkun took home a prize in the Fraser Valley Regional Library’s teen photo contest.

The Garibaldi Secondary School student won in the “It’s Just Not Natural” category for her moody photograph titled Ship Wrecked.

The grand prize went to Sahara Brouwer for her submission You Can Tell by My Smile.

In addition to Best Buy gift certificates for the overall winners in each category, FVRL also contributed 2 Kobo eReaders to the loot, which went to second and third place winners in the grand prize category - Sean Dance and Mark Westwood.

In celebration of Teen Tech Week in March, teens were asked to show off their photography skills by snapping shots and entering them to win prizes.

In response, the Fraser Valley Regional Library received hundreds of amazing submissions.
