KS1 1st Place Photo Lockdown Rainbows

Schools’ Photographic Competition 2020

The WGC Centenary Schools Photographic Competition was the first event launched in 2017 to celebrate the centenary, organised by the WGC Photographic Club.

2020 marked the 4th year of the competition, taking place in the centenary year.  

The original theme of ‘Celebrations’ was changed to ‘Lockdown’ and we achieved entries for both.

The judging panel met virtually in July 2020 and had to assess images based on these two very different themes. The Judges were again extremely impressed with the creativity behind the photos and we’d like to congratulate all the children who entered, the finalists and the winners. 

The Royal Photographic Society have also judged for the past 2 years.

All the images were viewed anonymously – the judges were unaware as to the photographer’s identity or the name of the School attended. A shortlist of entries was created for each year group by reviewing and discussing all the entries and collating the judges’ individual scores. The shortlists were then reviewed.

The extent to which an image met the theme was discussed and the merits of the different images were debated. This allowed for a range of comments to be considered in arriving at a consensus view on the winners.

We were delighted to find merit in all these entries. The commentary provided with each image is intended to draw the viewer’s attention to those factors contributing to the success of the entry.
