St Modwen, the UK's leading regeneration specialist and owner of The Meads, is celebrating its 30th anniversary during 2016. To mark this milestone, the company is inviting Year 9 - 11 students from 30 schools across England and Wales to take part in 'Making Places': a national schools photography competition.
The Wavell School in Farnborough will be taking part in this national competition and to fulfil the theme of 'Making Places', students need to capture photographs which explore what community, architecture or urban design means to them. The aim is to inspire, excite and support the next generation on a subject matter that impacts everybody and at the same time and enhances student's photography skills.
One of the resourse available to the budding photographer is a special workshop led by Stephen Burke.Stephan Burke is a photographer for The Telegraph and Financial Times and a member of the award winnng cotemporary art oranisation, WERK. These workshops will take place throughout June in Farnborough town centre.
So, if you see lots of students with cameras around the Shopping Centre on your visit - wish them the best of luck. One of them could be the talented recipient of a top of the range camera and £3,000 funding to The Wavell School's art department.
