Rotary Young Photographer 2015

Report on the Rotary Young Photographer competition 2015

Rotary Young Photographer of the Year 2015


The competition this year saw some truly outstanding entries for Young Photographer of the Year. It was a really wonderful evening on Wednesday 9 December at Rook Lane Chapel by kind permission of NVB Architects who waived any charge for the hire of the chapel. There was a great atmosphere and lots of very beautiful photographs. 


The submissions this year showed a huge variety of skill and talent, which was noticed by both the Rotarians who organised the event, as well as the other guests who attended. The judges remarked that the standard was the highest they had seen.

Frome College is filled with some very gifted and talented students, and it makes everyone at the school, very proud and happy seeing them being recognised for all their hard work. Lisa Millard, Assistant Principal at the College attended the award ceremony on behalf of the school, alongside Frome Rotarians, Christopher Good and President, Patrick Cusworth.

We would like to thank all the students who entered the competition, and also, all the staff in the College Art department. In particular, Sarah Auld, for her constant input and the assistance of Lily Knibbs in organising the event.

The final results are

In 1st Place - Charlotte Leesam in Year 13

2nd  - Thea Bryant in Year 13
3rd - Daniel Weston in Year 12

Winner, Charlotte Leesam, has been put forward to the District Final, and could go on to the National Final from there.


We wish her every success in the future, and send congratulations to all of them.
