Young photographers from the local area gathered together with parents, relatives and Rotary Club Members on Monday evening, 19th May for this year's prize giving at St Mary's Church of England School. The event marked the culmination of the Rotary Club's Young Photographer Competition, an annual event held to encourage and celebrate the photographic skill and talents of young people up to 18 years of age.
Now in its fourth year, the Rotary Young Photographer Competition is an increasingly popular event with local schools. The subject this year was 'People' and, with over 60 entries received, judging proved again to be a testing process.
The evening was introduced by Club President John Brown CBE John said "It is marvellous to see the truly remarkable entries from so many talented young photographers in our local community".
Central to the evening was the commentary and presentation of prizes by Haddenham based professional photographer, Paul Wilkinson. Paul was able to provide a very sensitive and perceptive commentary on each of the prizewinning and commended images while encouraging every young photographer with great enthusiasm and humour. He was as entertaining as he was informative, and the capacity audience was totally captivated.
This year's Haddenham Rotary Club Young Photographer First Prize winners were:
|Junior Winner (Age 7-10)||Abby Soutar||Tetsworth Primary School|
| Intermediate Winner|
|Belle Owen||Lord William's Schoo|
|Senior Winner (Age 14-18)||Jamie-Lee Grady||Waddesdon C of E School|
A complete list of prizewinners can be seen by clicking on 'Results 2014' (see below photographs). More photographs of the prizewinners and their images can be seen in our Galleries section.
The next Rotary competition is expected to be launched in the autumn and all local schools are invited to submit entries. Winning photographs may be selected for entry into Rotary's National Photographic Competition in 2015.
