Each year, the Company holds an annual photography competition. Open to all students and staff from the Company's family of schools, the competition is divided into Junior, Senior and Staff categories. This year, the theme was Hope and we are delighted to share with you the winners and highly commended in each category.
I am very pleased and very shocked because I didn't think I could win! I wanted to have a go because I love Art and Photography. I thought of what ‘hope’ means to me and came up with the idea of 'fingers crossed'. My mum was happy to be my model! Winning this has inspired me to take lots more photographs too.
This photograph was taken at Kinver's Edge in Staffordshire. Even after its surroundings have given up, this little plant still has hope. I am truly overjoyed to hear that I have been selected as the winner in this year's Merchant Taylors' competition, and I am so glad that I decided to take part in this. I truly think that words can’t describe my gratitude
I am thoroughly delighted to win this competition! A friend of mine grows the most beautiful, large sunflowers which attract bees. This is a chance photo that I took during lockdown. I remember how happy taking this photo made me – it gave me so much hope!
