A 17-year-old from New York is the winner of the second annual Sigma Corporation of America Scholarship Contest.

The contest, which started in November, required applicants to submit three to five theme-based photos and an essay describing their creative process.

Andrew Lu won the competition with his five black & white entries and he's now planning on studying photography at college next Autumn.

Andrew said: "I am extremely honoured to be chosen as the winner of the Sigma Photography Scholarship Contest. I want to thank everyone who has supported me throughout these few weeks. I would also thank my family and friends for believing in me the whole time. This is a great memory to cherish as I leave my high school years behind and start my new experiences in college."

Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America said: "Our decision was very difficult and we want to thank the talented young men and women who entered the contest, as well as the tens of thousands of people who voted to help us identify the five finalists. We’re honoured to support young photographers and provide this opportunity to high school seniors each year."

He continued: "The judges were moved by Andrew’s ability to convey truth and vulnerability in his black and white photographs, and we felt his goals were successfully articulated in his essay. We look forward to following his photography career."
