Photography Competition 2022
The winners of our Photography Competition 2022 were announced this week.
It was wonderful to see the return of our annual Photography Competition, the first time since the pandemic, and we were honoured to welcome Morwenna Kearlsey, a Glasgow-based visual artist and photographer, to judge the competition entries. With more than 50 entries received, she had her work cut out.
Pupils and staff had the choice of five themes: portrait, up-close, the magic of light, architectural, and favourite thing, and Morwenna was amazed at the calibre of images.
Criteria she looked for involved lighting, creativity, the story it told, and the use of colour, to name a few, and was delighted to announce the following winners for each category:
• Category 1 – S1/S2: Shahadha (S1)
• Category 2 – S3/S4: Iona (S4)
• Category 3 – S5/6: Millie (S6)
• Category 4 – Staff: Geography Teacher, Mr Stirling
Morwenna was so impressed with the high quality and imagination of the images, she also wanted to acknowledge several as Special Mentions, and kindly gave feedback to each. Congratulations to Callum (S1), Sihan (S2), Olivia (S2), Chloe (S3), Harnisha (S5), and Mona (S6).
As you can see from the image gallery below, there were a range of beautiful photographs captured, and they will also go on display in the library corridor next week at our Beaton Road campus.
Congratulations to all participants on these truly captivating images. Special thanks to Morwenna for being our judge and to our Art Department for organising this school-wide competition.
