Young photographers from Exmouth Community College have had their talents recognised in the Rotary Club’s Young Photographer competition.
John Thorogood, president of the Rotary Club of Exmouth and District, presented certificates to members of the college’s post-16 photography group who entered the competition, with entries based on the theme of ‘reflection’.
The winning entry was by Sommer Vandenberg, who also finished runner-up in the district competition covering the whole of Devon and Cornwall.
Exmouth organiser Frank Hart-Venn described her entry as: “A very different and creative interpretation of the theme. Three impactful and thought-provoking images that are very well constructed.”
Oliver Evans was named as Exmouth runner-up.
The Young Photographer competition is designed to support and encourage development of photographic skills, and aims to encourage young people to experiment with photography using digital or traditional methods, show interpretation of the chosen topic, and express their ideas.
