Our A Level Photography students were extremely successful in London Metropolitan University’s School of Art, Architecture and Design’s ‘Your People, Your Places, Your Things’ Photography Competition 2023. The competition, now in its third year, was open to students of photography and visual arts subjects aged 16 or over and in full-time further education at schools or FE colleges in the United Kingdom. Students were asked to submit their favourite portrait, landscape and still life photographs.
Paige Haydock-Jones, a former Atherton Community School student and now studying A Level Media Studies, Photography and Psychology at The Sixth Form won the best image in the ‘Your People’ portrait category . Her beautiful image is shown above. Paige was also a runner-up in the ‘Your Things’ still-life category and was shortlisted in the ‘Your Places’ landscape category.
Georgia-Millie Crocker, a former Harper Green School student and now studying A Level Art, Craft & Design, Film Studies and Photography at The Sixth Form was a runner up in the category: ‘Your Places’.
Teacher of Photography, Michelle Pennington, was delighted to hear about her students’ success saying:
Following on from last years success with Ali Malek being the overall winner of the London Metropolitan University Photography Competition I am really please to announce that our A level Photography students have once again been very successful in this competition, gaining Best Portrait and two runners up places. I am very proud of the work they have produced, and this has shone through when up against other photography students from colleges across the country. Well done Paige and Georgia!!
