SIX talented pupils of The Marist School were awarded for their stunning photography skills in the Rotary Club Young Photographer of the Year competition.

The budding photographers were presented with certificates on September 25th by the Rotary Club of Ascot, for capturing the theme of "reflection" in photography which shone in this year's competition.

Skilled pupil Mia Shah was the winner in the Ascot area for the Intermediate category, with her incredible 'Landscape Inverted in a Glass' taking first place.

Lucy Griffiths was awarded the runner up prize for her beautiful glass architecture, while Rebecca Watson's scenic lake and Wildlife reflections also secured a special mention.

In the senior category, student Maria D’Agata received the runner-up prize for her impressive mirrored images. Alex Bennett's "Scenes of Bath", and Abigail Watson's V&A Museum reflections also both received a special mention.

Mr. Hugo Winkler, President of the Rotary Club of Ascot said of this year's competition:

“A record number of entries were received, proving just how much good talent there is amongst our local student population.”

Congratulating the girls, Mrs. Tania Bennett, Teacher of Art and Photography, said:

“We are so proud of the girls who achieved such excellent results in this national competition. It is fantastic to see their talent recognised by such an organisation.”
