Date Posted: 13/06/2017 | Posted In: Latest news

A level Photography students at QE have been triumphant at a regional Young Photographer Competition.

The students had the opportunity to enter a live photography competition in association with the Richmond Rotary Club. They captured images in response to ‘A Moment in Time’, a subject which was open to interpretation. Vicky Snowball, QE’s photography teacher, says

“The competition presented a great opportunity for the students to respond in a personal way capturing moments of time in their lives. It is refreshing to see student talent rewarded by accredited, professional photographers in industry”

The presentation evening was held at the Richmondshire Museum, Richmond and the evening showcased fantastic photography work from all categories including junior, intermediate and the senior category which allowed students up to the age of 18 to enter. QE students were extremely successful in the senior category with Emily Webster winning £40 for first place; Daniel Brown collecting £30 for second place and Robert Ellison collecting £20 for third place. Students also won a day’s work experience with professional photographer Garry Brannigan who has worked in the industry for over 40 years.

Robert Carey, President of the Richmond Rotary Club presented the QE students with a certificate, prize money and an invitation to work with Garry on Saturday 1st July in the Dales. Jordan Oliver, Jessica Hull and El Dewar also got a certificate for coming highly commended in the competition. Jos Huddleston, Young Photographer Competition Coordinator comments:

“The quality of the work was wonderful, and gave our Judges a long and difficult task. They were so impressed by the thoughtfulness of the students and the quality of the work submitted. I have received so many positive comments on the quality of the work, and the commitment of the students and the college.”
