Win­ning en­tries pic­ture per­fect

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

BUCKS County Mu­seum and the Bri­tish In­sti­tute of Pro­fes­sional Pho­tog­ra­phy (BIPP) have an­nounced the win­ners of a com­pe­ti­tion run in con­junc­tion with the cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion Pho­tog­ra­phy! at the mu­seum.

Win­ners were pre­sented with their prizes at Bucks County Mu­seum on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 13 by BIPP chief ex­ec­u­tive Chris Harper and BIPP di­rec­tor and lead­ing por­trait pho­tog­ra­pher Bella West.

The over-16s cat­e­gory was won by Ian Moss of Ayles­bury, with Nick Stead­man from Pre­ston Bis­sett and Anna Ready from Eyn­sham re­ceiv­ing merit awards.

The 16 and un­der cat­e­gory was won by Amy Price, 15, from Princes Ris­bor­ough, and merit awards were given to Joe Longdin, 13, from Quain­ton, Char­lotte Wood, 15, from Far­ing­don, and Joanne Walker, 15, from Princes Ris­bor­ough.

The win­ners re­ceived a £50 Ama­zon voucher and spe­cial cer­tifi­cates do­nated by BIPP.

Win­ner Ian Moss, who runs the Princes Ris­bor­ough School pho­tog­ra­phy club, said he en­cour­ages his stu­dents to cre­ate pho­to­graphs as works of art rather than just take pic­tures.

His tal­ented stu­dents picked up both win­ning en­try and two merit awards with their in­spir­ing im­ages.

The win­ning en­tries can be seen at the Pho­tog­ra­phy! ex­hi­bi­tion un­til Satur­day March 5.
