Awards to winners of the Haddenham and District annual 'Young Photographer Competition' were presented at a ceremony on Monday 4th November at St Mary's School Haddenham. The theme for this year's competition was "Climate"
Local professional and award winning photographer Paul Wilkinson presented the prizes and provided helpful feedback.
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 composition and format, and useful tips for improving technique for future competition entries
Haddenham Rotary extend their grateful thanks to Paul Wilkinson and St Mary' 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.
