Stephen Perse Foundation Photography Competition

Published on 18/07/14

The first ever 'What is learning?' photography competition, organised by the Stephen Perse Foundation governors, has been an amazing success

Students from across the six schools of the foundation were invited by the governors to submit photographic entries that captured their experience of learning, in any digital format.

Students with access, or their teachers, simply had to upload their image to a Google Drive folder by the deadline of 13th June 2014.

Judges from the Governors, The Head of Visual Arts, and the Marketing & Communications Department selected a shortlist of 34 images from almost 80 entries.

Congratulations go to everyone who entered the 2014 'What is learning?' photography competition.

The judges were extremely pleased with the response and the standard was so high that the decision was made to reward Highly Commended entries in each category with a prize as well.

All the entries are displayed here, and the 34 shortlisted, highly commended and prize winning entries will be also be printed and displayed in an exhibition at the Senior School in Cambridge in the Autumn term.

Five competition winners will all receive a £25 Amazon voucher and highly commended entries win the prize of a £10 Amazon voucher.
