Mini photographers at Bleasby Primary School have their best pictures judged by professional photographer
Budding photographers have had their best snaps judged by a high-flying professional.
Bleasby Primary School ran a photography competition for its pupils over the past term.
It started during the summer when the children were tasked with taking a photo during their holidays on a theme of the great outdoors.
Images ranged from holidays abroad, to day trips in the UK, or even from their own back gardens.
The competition was organised by year three teacher Mrs Angela Dunning.
She said: “I first did a photography competition eight years ago at a previous school and it went down really well.
There were winners chosen from key stage one and two, with a runner-up for key stage one and two runners-up in key stage two.
Key stage one winner was Tilly Gill, 5, with her stunning image of trees in a forest, with Spike Beardmore, 5, as runner-up with his photo of a visiting squirrel in his garden.
Key stage two winner was nine-year-old Eleanor Sheikhossain, with her photo of a cheeky lizard poking his head out of a crack in a wall, and runners-up Harry Spencer and Lois Emerton, both 8, were commended for their photos of stunning landscapes.
“I thought in a time where children are constantly taking selfies, it would be good to get them taking photos of the world around them,” said Mrs Dunning.
The winners were judged by London-based food photographer David Munns, who has photographed for professional chef cook books, including Jamie Oliver.
He said: “The standard was exceptional. The children had obviously really engaged with the competition and put in real effort.”
The winning photographs were framed by Southwell Framing and Design, and prizes were organised for the winners.
All the photos are on display in the school.
