Trinity student named ‘People’s Choice’ at Croydon Rotary Club Photography Competition
20th October 2017
Trinity student, Daniel Gilbert, has won the People’s Choice Prize in this year’s Croydon Rotary Club Photography Competition.
Awarded for his piece entitled ‘Croydon Market’, Daniel was successful in the 13–16 years of age category. He also received second prize for his piece ‘London Eye’ in the 13-16 years of age category.
Daniel was presented with his award by the Mayor of Croydon at the Click Clock Gallery this week.
On winning the award, Daniel said: “My two photos were very different but both showed off my points of view. It feels great to win prizes in two categories, and it's nice to have my photography recognised by others, too”.
Tuppence Stevens-Lewis, teacher in charge of Photography at Trinity, said: “Having worked with Daniel during his GCSEs I am very proud of his continued interest in the subject and his success in winning these awards”.
Tim Strange, Director of Art at Trinity also said: “The photography GCSE and A level at Trinity continues to deliver a high level of education and encourages students to participate in a number of competitions outside of their studies. It is wonderful to see Dan do so well at a competition that is judged externally to his GCSE coursework. It is testament to the hard work of the teachers and students within photography that they continue to support and have such success”.
