There were some stunning entries to the first round heat of the Rotary Young Photographer Competition 2021, a national competition organised by Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland.
The theme for this years competition was: ‘WILD NATURE’
The Young Photographer competition, an annual event, is designed for Young People to express themselves through the medium of photography by submitting three digital photos on the theme for the year. It is open to students in full time education in three age groups;
Junior 7 – 10 years
Intermediate 11 – 13 years
Senior 14 – 17 years
The St Albans and Harpenden local heat this year was held in difficult circumstances during lockdown conditions. Whilst a challenge, it did not deter our intrepid students from getting out with their cameras. The standard was impressive. We were able to put a number of students through to the next Regional District round and we wish them luck. The judges then went through all the entries and have chosen the best overall photo in each of the three age categories and have awarded a trophy to the winners.
