'Nature of Animals' Schools Photography competition at Beverley Treasure House

From Saturday 22 July, 2017, and throughout the summer holidays, the Treasure House in Beverley will be hosting a display of pictures from the recent ‘Nature of Animals’ Schools Photography Competition.

During the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition held at Beverley Art Gallery earlier this year, schools across the East Riding were invited to take part in a wildlife photography competition.

Young photographers were asked to get creative and capture images of animals around them - from their own pets to the amazingly diverse wildlife outside their back door. No part of the East Riding was off limits. Each photograph was accompanied  with a caption to give the image a particular meaning, bringing words and images together to create a 'bigger picture'.  Entries fell into three categories: Foundation/Key Stage 1 (4 - 7 years); Key Stage 2 (7 - 11 years); and Key Stage 3 (11 - 14 years).

The judging panel found making the winning decisions extremely hard.  Librarian Kimberley Harston, who was on the panel, said:  “The quality of entries was outstanding. We were overwhelmed by the standard of photography and the thought that had gone into the captions. It wasn’t just about taking a good photo -  the words needed to add something extra to the image”.

KS1 winner was Zara Kotawage from Cottingham Croxby Primary School, with her photograph entitled ‘My super, slow snail’. The judges said, "We were all very impressed with this photograph, the detail and colour were brilliant".

Cordelia Singleton from Hornsea Community Primary School was the KS2 winner. The judges said of her entry, "This was an excellent photograph showing the jackdaw in all its glory”.

Daisy Young, from Bridlington School, took the prize for KS3.  The judges responded, "This was a lovely photograph and clearly a lot of effort had been put into the taking of this in early morning".

A number of children were highly commended by the judges for their photographs. In KS1 they were:  Rosie Ralph from Cottingham Bacon Garth Primary School; Harvey Richardson from Newport; Darcey Varhalamas from Newbald ; and Ruby Fuller from Warter.  KS2 highly commended entries were by Lucy Coombe from Molescroft and Eliza Loftus from Newbald.  Lattia Emms from Headlands School received a highly commended for her entry in the KS3 category.

The competition forms part of the council’s No Limits: Adventures Beyond the Classroom Learning Programme which is part of the council’s contribution as a Principal Partner of Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
