2019 Art Trail Schools Photographic Competition
Every year Photofold Camera Club organises a ‘Schools Photographic Competition’ for 7 to 11 year olds. Last year 21 new cameras were purchased for the schools to use. This was made possible due to a gratefully received donation from the Billericay Round Table.
The theme this year is ‘School Activities’
Three schools took part this year and the photographs will be on display at the Billericay library during September in the children’s section. The awards were presented by the competition judge Chris Thurman at the library on Saturday 7th September 2019. To view images from this year’s presentation please click on image below.
