Photo Competition Prize Winners
Junior 1 Zara Hadley
Intermediate 1 Thomas Fell
Senior 1 William Vaughan
Senior C James Evans

The Rotary Club of Haddenham and District organised another 'Young Photographer Competition' during the early part of 2017, inviting entries from youngsters in three age groups:

  • Junior for Age 7 to 10 yrs
  • Intermediate for Age 11 to 13 yrs
  • Senior for Age 14 to 18 yrs

The subject for all groups this year was 'ENERGY'

On Monday evening, 5th June, the results of the 2017 competition were announced and prizes awarded at a ceremony held at Haddenham St Mary's School.

Local professional photographer, Paul Wilkinson, awarded the prizes and complimented each of the winners with an encouraging explanation of why particular photographs were chosen. He also offered some gentle advice on photographic techniques and composition, as well as waxing lyrical on the joys of photography in general.

Entries to the competition from the Senior age group were a little compromised this year by new restrictions imposed by GCSE examination boards, which precluded students from submitting images to the Rotary competition before they have been assessed as part of their school course. This complication will be discussed with the schools and the exam boards, so that the problem can be resolved for future years.
