Tal­ented chil­dren snap to it

Midweek Visiter - - News -

THE WIN­NERS of this year’s Crosby Ju­nior Pho­to­graphic Com­pe­ti­tion have been re­vealed.

Tal­ented young lo­cal pho­tog­ra­phers at­tended an ex­hi­bi­tion and cer­e­mony in Crosby’s St Luke’s Church ear­lier this month to see who would walk away with the tro­phy and £50 first prize.

The com­pe­ti­tion drew en­tries from pupils and stu­dents from across Crosby, Water­loo and Thorn­ton who were then in­vited to see their work in print and dis­played in front of an au­di­ence for the first time.

Run in con­junc­tion with Crosby Camera Club and The Ro­tary Club of Crosby, the im­ages were on the theme of Sefton in Spring­time and the judges were im­pressed by the colourful and imaginative work pro­duced.

Anna Sug­den from St Mary’s Prepara­tory School fought off tough com­pe­ti­tion for the prize in the 6-11 age group with her im­age Spring Heaven, while Dy­lan Cure­ton from Holy Fam­ily School took home the tro­phy in the cat­e­gory for 12-18 yearolds for his photo Blossom.

Stephen Lang, Pres­i­dent of Crosby Camera Club, said: “This is the sec­ond time we’ve run this com­pe­ti­tion and its pop­u­lar­ity, along with the qual­ity of en­tries, con­tin­ues to grow.

“The judg­ing panel found it dif­fi­cult to sep­a­rate their win­ners from the many com­mended pho­to­graphs, but the two cho­sen were cer­tainly stand-out im­ages.

“These chil­dren are the pho­tog­ra­phers of the fu­ture and that fu­ture cer­tainly looks bright given the stan­dard pro­duced this year.”

The win­ning prints are cur­rently on dis­play in the en­trance to Crosby Li­brary.
