We have announced the judging panel for our ‘Living St Albans’ photography competition. This is open to anyone at Infant, Junior or Secondary School and prizes include £100 for the winner of each age category. There are also prizes for the best combined entry (e.g. a photo montage) from a school, year, class, or youth group.
The difficult task of deciding the winning entrants falls to the judging panel of Danny Loo, photographer for the Herts Advertiser, Emma Collins, a local lifestyle documentary photographer, and Sandy Adams from Plastic Free St Albans.
“I’m really looking forward to judging this competition and finding out how talented our young photographers really are. Who knows, one of them could end up working for the Herts Ad one day.” Danny Loo, Herts Advertiser Photographer.
Finalists and shortlisted photos will be displayed during Sustainable St Albans Week on the children’s display board in Harpenden library until Saturday 5th May and in the Courtyard Cafe, Hatfield Road, St Albans. At the conclusion of the week, ‘Living St Albans Photography Exhibition’ will be on show at Verulamium Museum from Monday 30th April to Sunday 3rd June.
Winning photographs (1st, 2nd, 3rd in each category) will be displayed at the final event of Sustainable St Albans Week, the “Know How Festival” on Sunday 29th April at Fleetville School. Prizes in each category will be presented by the Mayor of St Albans at 1pm.
Entrants have until 5pm on 29th March to submit their photograph, along with a short description (25 words max) explaining their work. More information and an entry form can be found here http://sustweek18photocomp.co.uk/
“We’re looking for original and creative ideas that capture living sustainably in our district and up to 25 words explaining why. Look at the 10 themes of environmental sustainability (on the website) to help come up with some ideas for your picture.” Caroline Wilkins, Competition Organiser.
