2019 Centenary Photographic Competition – Winners

On the 4th July 2019, the winners of the 2019 Centenary Photographic Competition were announced and prizes awarded to the winning photographers by The Mayor, Cllr Mr Roger Trigg.

A new feature this year were Special Awards given by the Royal Photographic Society. The winners of this award are signified by the letters RPHSSA in the photograph title.

Experts Richard White and Peter Budd of the WGC Photographic Club, again provided the technical organisation of the competition including selecting and organising the judges and liaising with schools on submissions.

The Mayor said: “I was extremely impressed with the standard and imagination of these photos, some taken by youngsters of just 5 years old.  Next year’s competition in our centenary year should provide something really special.’

Judge Rob Draper said: “It was refreshing to see photos taken by a different generation who are bathed in more images than ever.  Children see things differently and with a photographer’s eye, taking creative shots, not just a snap shot of what is important to them and their families.

David Kell who heads up the Schools WGC100 programme thanked teachers for inspiring their pupils to enter, and encouraged pupils to submit their photos next year when the theme will be ‘Celebration’.

The winning photographs are:
