School Photography Competition 2017 - Beginnings and Endings

Oakham School Creative iMedia Department recently ran the popular school photography competition. The theme was ‘Beginnings and Endings’, which was set by the Art Department and is the GCSE Art exam topic this year. 

The photographs were judged by Teacher of Creative iMedia, Mr Deane, and Mr Howe of Rutland Photographic and were assessed against the theme, their arresting content and technical quality.

Mr Deane said, “The response to the competition was excellent, and we had a huge number of entries. The standard of the photography was high with some truly creative ideas.”
