Lions photograhic competition winners at Burlington School

YOUNG photographers from a Bridlington junior school have shown they know how to create winning pictures.

The year 6 class at Burlington school beat 10 others from primary and junior schools in Bridlington and surrounding area to become winners of a Lions photographic competition.

The contest is a new joint venture launched last year between Bridlington Lions Club and North Wolds Lions Club – a photographic competition for primary schools in Bridlington and the surrounding area.

This year’s competition has just been completed.

Each year 6 class from the 11 schools taking part was given two disposable cameras and asked to take up to 48 photographs, the subject being “The Living World”.

The cameras were then sent for processing after which the photographs were returned to the schools and the pupils asked to select what they thought were the best six pictures.

Mike Barnard of Images Photography, carried out the judging to find the winner and runners-up.

Burlington junior school came out top with runners up Burton Agnes school and New Pasture Lane school.

Burlington were presented with trophies and certificates, All the schools who took part also received a Certificate of Achievement, and the eight schools who were not placed receive a small lion as a consolation prize.
