Report from the 2018 Inter-Schools Print Competition
Congratulations to all the students who took part in the Ashford Photographic Society Inter-Schools Photography Print Competition for 2018. Entries were received from Ashford College, Ashford School, Highworth Grammar School and Homewood School. The competition covered six categories – portraiture, photo journalism, natural history, landscape, artistic interpretation and pictorial – divided into two age groups for 11 to 15 years, and 16 to 18 years, and all prints were on display at the Awards evening hosted by Highworth School on 22nd January.
Givaudan continue to generously support this competition and we were delighted to have the company of Jane Heyburn on the evening to assist with the presentation. Neil Owen, who judged all the competition entries and commented on the winners, said he was very impressed with the excellent work of all the young photographers and the imagination and enthusiasm they had brought to the competition. He was joined by Jane Heyburn to present the prizes, trophies and certificates, with Highworth once again taking the shield for the school with overall winners. The evening was a great success and well attended by parents and friends all gathering to celebrate the success of the students.
Ashford Photographic Society would like to say how pleased they are to be able to bring this competition to the schools, made possible by the generous sponsorship of Givaudan. If more schools would like to join in with this year’s competition APS would be pleased to hear from them, and contact can be made through our website at www.ashfordps.org.uk
