Junior Girls Get Snap Happy
Wednesday, 19 May 2010
Year 3 pupil Lizzie Crowther has become the Bolton School Junior Girls' Young Photographer of the Year!
Lizzie won the Junior Girls' photography competition with her photos, which included a self-portrait photograph in a London tube station, where she cleverly used a convex mirror for effect.
The photography competition was held over Easter and after being given some photography hints and tips by the School's marketing manager, the girls went away over the holidays and took photographs in a range of categories including nature, people, places and sport. There was a form winner in each category and Lizzie won the Nature and Places categories in her form. She was also the winner in her year for her Places photo and was commended in the A day to Remember category, taking the title of Photographer of the Year.
The Parents' Association and Head of School, Mrs Ruth Brierley, judged the photos and awarded rosettes and commendations to form and year winners and the winning shield to overall winner Lizzie.
