Young Photographer 2017

Added 3 years ago

It’s time to get your cameras out and explore beautiful wintery Cornwall looking for inspiration!

The Rotary are once again running their Young Photographer competition. This is a 3 stage competition with each round being judged by professional photographers and there are great prizes to be won. Richard Lander School has a great history of success in entering  this competition, with Alfie Martin winning the district round in his age group last year along with  other notable finalists.

Task: To produce a portfolio of three photographs based upon the theme, ‘Reflection’ in colour or black and white on photographic paper. Prints are to be submitted separately. Each print, including any mount should be no larger than A4 size. Mobile Phones may be used but please take the photo in the highest resolution possible and be wary of any filters which may reduce this.  Similarly when emailing a photo make sure you are sending it in the largest format possible. 

If you are  in any doubt, Miss Wright is more than happy to help. Pop in to the DT Base at lunchtime or during tutor time. She will also your images for you if you send her a jpeg by 25th January at the latest. District competition winners will be asked for a digital copy of their photographs in jpg format and ideally 5MB for an A4 sized print.

In addition, each entrant should provide a brief sentence of what each photograph represents in relation to the theme and also need to fill in an entry form - available from the DT Base or Creative Arts Base.

Please Note: Photographs which include people under 18 years old must be accompanied by written permission from the parent, guardian or carer of the person photographed. 

Last year the Rotary produced a calendar featuring the best entries from 2016. We were very proud that 7 of the images used were from Richard Lander School students. We still have a few of these calendars left over and they are available for £5 from the DT base or from Main Reception. All proceeds go to  Cornwall Air Ambulance and End Polio Now. 

DEADLINE: 26th January 2017
