This week we celebrated the success of our pupil’s involvement in the Saffron Walden Young Photographer competition. The theme for the competition this year was ‘Rebuilding’ and although challenging and difficult to interpret, the range of photographs submitted from pupils in all year groups demonstrated, once again, the skill and creativity of our pupils. The competition was judged by professional photographers, Celia Bartlett and Roger King and three pupils were invited to a presentation evening at the Saffron Walden Golf Club.

Congratulations to William C, Year 11, whose two photographs were awarded Highly Commended in the senior category. The judges commented on Will’s effective use of composition, detail and visual story, especially in his photograph of demonstrators in London, describing the photograph as “an exploration of people attempting to ‘Rebuild’ Society through protest.”

We also wish to congratulate Joseph W, Year 9, who’s photography once again won him first place in the intermediate category for a second year in a row! His photograph was praised for being highly detailed, emotive, well composed and colourful. Joseph’s entry will go forward to the District level of the competition.

Further congratulations go to Liam H, Year 7, whose colourful and texturally detailed photograph of an old brick wall being replaced and renovated was well composed and interesting.

Mr Roberts and Mrs Daveta joined pupils and parents at the Rotary presentation event and an enjoyable evening, celebrating our pupil’s success, was enjoyed by all.
