The annual Burton Bradstock Primary School inter-class photo competition, sponsored by Burton Bradstock ONLINE, took place during the Summer Term 2014. All Classes entered photographs linked to the topic ‘ Play’. This year the Winner’s Shield went to Class 3 and they accepted, on behalf of the School, a Nikon Coolpix Waterproof Digital Camera. Another camera was accepted on behalf of the School by pupil Jessica who submitted the best individual entry.
The entries were judged by Patrick Coughlin, a professional photographer from London, who said “All the entries were of an excellent standard but there had to be a winner and that was Class 3.” He said he “was particularly impressed with Jessica’s (Class 4) entry and she was a worthy winner of the individual prize”. The pupils were a particularly attentive audience when Mr. Coughlin demonstrated how, by just using two pieces of L shaped card, you could decide which would be the best view to use when wanting to photograph something.
Headteacher, Mrs. Claire Staple, thanked David Edwards, a member of the ONLINE Committee, for once again organising a School Photographic Competition and thanked the Committee for its generosity in giving the School two more digital cameras for use by all the pupils.
