Winners of the Club round of the Rotary Young Photographer 2021 competition were celebrated this week at a private award event.

Winners of the Taunton Rotary Club Young Photographer 2021 competition were celebrated at a private awards ceremony due to the restrictions of the continuing Coronavirus situation.

Neave Hughes and Scarlett Jones, were presented with  their certificates by Club President Peter Renshaw at a tea party hosted by Patrick and Catherine Berry in their garden at the weekend. It was a very successful afternoon, enjoyed by all and much appreciated by the parents and the winners.

Neave won the Senior section ( 14-17 ) at club level and Scarlett the Intermediate section(11-13). As winners,  of the local heat, their photographs automatically went forward to the District 1200 competition where both girls won Highly Commended certificates. District 1200 covers a very large area which includes Bath, North Somerset, North Wiltshire and North Dorset so earning recognition at District level is quite an achievement.

All competitors submitted three photographs to exhibit their talent. Both Neave's and Scarlett's entries were judged to be especially compelling, artistically creative and technically advanced. Neave will start her further education in the autumn at Bridgwater and Taunton College with the ambition of developing a career in professional photography.  Scarlett, who is also a keen horse rider will continue to develop her skills ad wo knows, she may also find that her talents shape her future career choices.

Get your cameras clicking as the competition will be held again this year with entries to be submitted before the end of 2021. The theme for the 2022 Competition will be “Colours of Nature” and you can find more information on the entry requirements and criteria in the information leaflet for Young Photographer 2022.
