Gloucestershire Young Photographer Competition 2024

We were delighted to received 838 individual entries from a total of 59 schools.  May we thank all School Representatives and other staff who have undertaken all the entering and uploading of entries for their pupils.

The Competition, now in its 20th year, was open to pupils in Primary and Secondary Schools in Gloucestershire. Each pupil was able to submit just one titled digital image each, on any subject.

Judging took place early April and all schools that entered were informed of their accepted and award winning entries. The Award winners were invited  to the Presentation and Awards Evening at the Cheltenham Playhouse on Thursday 25th April. Unfortunately, due to the limited space available at the Playhouse, only the award winners could be invited. However, in due course, the Audio Visual Presentation that was shown will be made available to all Schools that entered. This includes all the entries that were selected at the Judging. 

Cups and certificates were awarded for the OVERALL BEST SCHOOL ENTRY in each section as follows –

Runner-Up Primary was Rodmarton Primary School

Winner Primary was St Mark’s CofE Junior School

Runner-Up Secondary was Pate’s Grammar School

Winner Secondary was Cheltenham Ladies College

Congratulations to all four schools for their excellent entries
