Photography Talent on Display
During February, while in lockdown, our art and photography department launched a black and white landscape photography competition, open to all pupils.
It was an ideal opportunity for our pupils to get creative and to showcase where they were and to share their beautiful surroundings with the school community.
Mrs Schmidt and Mrs Day were extremely impressed with the high standard of entries, commenting how brilliant it was to see such wonderful landscapes from across the world.
Choosing a winner was a challenge – those shortlisted were all deserving of the top spot, each demonstrating their own strengths. Lower Sixth pupil, Maddie J, was the eventual winner, with her image of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. A close second and third were Fifth Form pupil Olivia H, with a cornfield in Somerset, and Lower Sixth Former Ego M, with his tram scene in St Petersburg.
Three pupils were also awarded as highly commended: Rosie T with her Kenyan image of elephants and mount Kilimanjaro, Alyshia V with her photo of Fowey in Cornwall, and Mariia K and her montage of abstract snow.
Mrs Day said: "Maddie's stunning composition, capturing the reflection of lines to guide the viewer through the photograph, was a well-deserved first place. Olivia's second place photograph has feeling of nostalgia transporting the viewer to the spot, while Egor's third place street photography was stunning, putting him right on the tracks to get the perfect photograph."
