Lensic Future Voices encourages students ages 12–18 across New Mexico to tell their stories through original photographs and short films. In partnership with Santa Fe Workshops, Future Voices provides high school and middle school students with the support they need to create high-quality projects that are judged in monthly contests and a year-end competition, all with cash prizes. In-class or virtual workshops, led by filmmaking and photography experts, are also available.
