Young Photographer Competition 2020

St Leonards’ Young Photographers Are District Prizewinners

 Pupils from St Leonards School, St Andrews, proved to be the pick of the bunch in the District heat of the  Rotary Young Photographer 2020 competition.  Three of the local Rotary Clubs - North Fife, St Andrews and our own Kilrymont St Andrews sponsored entries to the intermediate and senior sections of the competition.   The young photographers were asked to focus on "Through My Eyes"

 Three local Rotary Clubs – Kilrymont, St Andrews and North Fife – sponsored six students from the school from the local heat. They progressed to the District Final.

 In stiff competition with other young photographers from all over the North of Scotland, three of the entries were placed and a fourth was highly commended.  

 Intermediate

Winner - Katie McAulay sponsored by North Fife Rotary Club  - Katie wins £50

Second Equal - Kathryn Walmsley sponsored by Kilrymont St Andrews Rotary Club - Kathryn wins £20

 Senior

Winner - Sihan Cai sponsored by North Fife Rotary Club - David wins £70 and the Phimister Trophy

 Commended - Carlotta Simon sponsored by St Andrews Rotary Club.

As winners of the District heat, Katie and Sihan Cai's entries went forward to the National Final (Great Britain and Ireland).

The students and staff of St Leonards and the members of the three Rotary Clubs are delighted by such excellent results.

Unfortunately, Covid-19 restrictions came into play so instead of a presentation to the winners, Amazon vouchers were sent to their home addresses.   After some delay we were notified of the results of National Final and unfortunately the entries were unsuccessful on this occasion.

Congratulations go to all the entrants and to the District heat winners.
