Schools' photographic talent rewarded

7th March 2001 at 00:00

Over 700 entries were received from schools across the UK for the SCRAN TES National Schools Photography Competition.

The judges - Mark Haworth-Booth, curator of Photographs at the Victoria and Albert Museum; Chris Holmes, director of design, TSL Education; Loyd Grossman, chairman of The Campaign for Museums; and Mary-Ann Kennedy, Lecturer in Photography, Napier University - commented on the high standard of the entries, which made the judging a long and difficult process.

"I was delighted to find so many talented young camera artists," said Mark Haworth-Booth of the V amp; A "The winning works have lodged vividly in my memory and I'm looking forward very much to seeing the originals again. It was very heartening."

Both winning schools (primary and secondary) receive a Viglen Contender Compact PC, with a 15" Colour Monitor and one-year onsite maintenance warranty, while both winning pupils (primary and secondary) get a Canon Powershot S10 Digital Camera plus a Canon BJC 8200 portable colour printer.

Commended and Runners up will receive a selection of software, books, dictionaries and visitor passes from the competition sponsors.

A prize-giving and exhibition of winner's work will take place in April in London.
