Awards to winners of the Haddenham and District Rotary's annual 'Young Photographer Competition' were presented at a ceremony on Wednesday 6th October at St Mary's School Haddenham. The theme for this year's competition was "Still Life"

The Awards evening was hosted by Jason Hewitt, Haddenham & District Rotary's President elect for 2021-22.

Local professional and award winning photographer Paul Wilkinson presented the prizes and provided helpful feedback in a highly engaging and entertaining manner.

Commenting on the continuing high standard of the entries and reflecting on the sheer joy that photography can bring, Paul gave generous encouragement to entrants and parents alike, a stimulating and insightful commentary on layout and format, and useful tips for improving techniques for future competition entries. His enthusiasm in encouraging youngsters to engage in photography was palpable.

Haddenham Rotary extend their grateful thanks to Paul Wilkinson and St Mary's School, and to Pretty Like Pictures for their generous support in beautifully mounting the winning photographs for display, which will go on tour to Haddenham Community Library, Pretty Like Pictures in Thame, and local schools

Congratulations to the prize winners.
