Morris Property photography competition success for students
4 February 2015
Students from Shrewsbury Sixth Form College are celebrating after being named winners of a regional photographic competition.
Leading local company Morris Property launched the initiative with Shrewsbury Sixth Form College to challenge students to showcase their creativity by capturing ‘Shrewsbury in Autumn’ on camera. The winning images are to feature on the huge display signage at the entrance to Morris Property’s prestigious Abbey Lawn development.
Lottie Tomkinson took the winning title as well as a cash prize of £500 with her colourful entry ‘Symmetry of Autumn’ which showcases the beauty of the Quarry during the autumn season. Runners up, Eliza Brown and Florence Spooner were highly commended and each won £250 with their creative shots of the English Bridge and Shrewsbury architecture.
The finalist’s entries have been printed and are on display for all to admire at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College.
Judging took place in Morris Property’s Head Office in Shrewsbury with the judges: Bill Morris, Director of Morris and Company, Robin Morris, Chairman of Morris and Company, Liz Lowe, Head of Estates at Morris Property, John Kenyon, celebrated local photographer and teacher and Stefan Greco, teacher of photography at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College.
Liz Lowe, Head of Estates at Morris Property, said: “We were bowled over at the enthusiastic response and calibre of entries. Some were really imaginative whilst others managed to capture the essence of the town through the lens. All the judges were deeply impressed with the different techniques demonstrated and the diversity of entries.”
Morris Property enjoys a close connection with neighbouring Shrewsbury Sixth Form College and would like to thank everyone who helped in organising the competition and the effort and talent of all the students who took part.
