Bolton College is calling out to local young photographers, as it launches a competition to give secondary school pupils the chance to win 50 pounds cash and a Nikon D3100 camera for their school.
The winning photographer will also get to see their work exhibited at the end of year art and design exhibition on Monday 17 June at Bolton College.
The photography competition is open to all Bolton secondary school pupils and sixth-formers. A team of judges, led by Marie Gilluley, Principal of Bolton College, will select the overall winner. The successful photographer and their school will receive their prizes at the opening night of the art and design exhibition.
Ian Littlewood, Bolton College schools co-ordinator and competition organiser, said: “We hope this competition will encourage pupils to express their creativity through photography. We’re looking for both imaginative and technically competent entries to be part of our annual arts exhibition.”
The college will launch a new photography diploma for 16 to 18-year-olds in September, which will offer students the chance to learn about photographic practices in professional studios, using cutting-edge technology.
Individual pupils can submit up to three images – all photos should be clearly marked on the reverse with their name, school and academic year. Bolton College’s Schools Liaison team will be visiting schools on Monday 10 June to collect the entries. To arrange a visit, please contact Ian Littlewood on 01204 482 142 or email Ian.Littlewood@boltoncc.ac.uk.
