Two students receive merits in national photography competition

Child under the covers‘Cave’ by Charlie Bryan

Two Norwich students have won Merit Awards in a national photography competition. Pictures by Charlie Bryan and Hannah Cook, who both study BA Photography at Norwich University of the Arts (NUA), were selected alongside 17 other submissions in the Fujifilm Student Awards 2011.

‘Cave’ by Charlie Bryan depicts a torchlit child under the bedclothes while Hannah’s ‘Untitled’ uses light and shadow to show a human form. Both students have won 10 rolls of Fujicolor Professional colour negative film.

NUA was also recognised by the competition as the source of the most entries, with its students totalling 174 submissions. The University College will be presented with a certificate and £200 worth of Fujifilm Professional film.

Gabriel Da Costa from Fujifilm Professional commented on the Awards: “The theme for this year’s awards was ‘Senses’ and the brief obviously appealed to students as we received some really imaginative, well executed images. It’s very encouraging see the next generation of professionals have such vision and skill.”

NUA’s Course Leader of Photography James Smith adds: “Working to the professional briefs set by national competitions such as the Fujifilm Student Awards provides excellent opportunities for students to hone the professional skills that are such a vital part of our course. Our achievement of getting the most submissions of any educational institution in the UK is testament to their enthusiasm for and engagement in the course.”

All the merited pictures, as well as the competition winner by Clelia Maumene, are currently displayed online at www.fujifilmstudentawards.co.uk.
