Iceland Trip: Photo Contest

Earlier in the term we reported on the Fourth Form visit to Iceland organised by the Geography Department. The Department has now announced the results of the photography competition they organised to challenge some of the budding young photographers among those Fourth Formers who took part in the trip.

The pupils took keenly to the competition and jumped out of the coach at every stop to photograph the stunning waterfalls, geysers, volcanoes and coastlines the country had to offer. The group was lucky enough to catch a glimpse ofAurora Borealis on the trip (more commonly known as the Northern Lights), and a few pupils even managed to take a respectable photo to mark the occasion. 

The Geography Department had great pleasure in looking through all of the entries, with the standard being incredibly high. 

Ellie Tredgett was awarded first place in the competition, for a fantastically timed photo of a geyser. Runners up were Millie Butler’s photo of an iconic Icelandic monument and Cameron Brassington’s glacier shot. A selection of entries is now on display in the geography and history corridor in the Henry Dawes Centre
