YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHER 2017
Young Photographer of the Year
Paula Averkamp won the Rotary Young Photographer 2017 National Final and Gabriel Guilfoyle was highly commended. Congratulations to Paula and Gabriel who have promised to enter the competition again next year
On Friday 24th February, the presentation of the prizes took place of the Norwich round of the Rotary sponsored - Young Photographer of the Year Award. We received 15 entrees of 3 photographs each, from 3 schools. Entrees were divided into two age groups - Intermediate 11-13 and Seniors 14-17. The theme was 'Reflection'
This was the first year that the event had been held in Norwich, and thanks go to Rotarian Anne Templeman for organising it. We were also lucky enough to have had the extremely generous backing of the Norwich University of the Arts who provided a superb venue on Duke Street Norwich. Their Group Leader of Photography, James Smith, judged the event and commented on the high standard of the work. Additional support was provided by Professor Richard Sawdon-Smith, Dean of Media and Arts and the presentation of prizes to the winners was made by the Vice - Chancellor, Professor John Last.
Around 60 students and parents attended the prize giving and had a chance to see all of the photographs mounted on presentation boards. The winners were:
The winning photographs from Gabriel Guilfoyle and Paula Averkamp will be entered in the District Final to be held in Ipswich later this month
