Even with COVID-19 the show must go on and Ilford Photo announced today the winner of their student photography contest. The subject of this year’s competition was “A sense of…”
That honour, and the title of ‘ILFORD PHOTO UK Student Photographer of the Year 2019/20’, goes to Paige Newell from King’s Ely School in Cambridge. Paige’s beautiful portrait ‘A Sense of Vulnerability’ was captured on ILFORD HP5 Plus and superbly printed on ILFORD MULTIGRADE IV RC Deluxe. Paige’s win marks an incredible 3-year streak for King’s Ely School and tutor Antonio Longo, Head of Photography. It once again reinforces the school’s reputation as a hot bed for emerging photographers and shows how they have benefited from integrating the competition into their GCSE and A Level curriculum. The school continues to explore all elements of film and darkroom printing processes, from Chemigrams to B&W printing.
Congratulations Paige! The details of next year’s photography contest will be posted on Ilford Photo’s website soon.
