The Geography Department at Farlington Senior School, in association with Toby Phillips Photography, launched its own competition to mark the start of an exciting year ahead in Geography, inspired by the Geographical Association 2017 Physical Landscape Photograph competition.
Over the summer break, girls in Farlington’s Years 7-9 photographed a physical landscape and completed a report, which explained the physical processes which had created the landscape, and also identified how the landscape had changed over time. Toby Phillips, a highly-regarded professional photographer, spent hours reviewing the entries and judging the girls’ photographic skills.
Toby attended the Senior School assembly to award prizes and certificates to the girls. In first place was Esme Allford with her photograph of the beautiful thermal waters of Lake Vouliagmeni, Greece. Imogen Hunting was placed second for her stunning photograph of the Rio Chillar, Nerja, and Millie Lewis came third with her awe-inspiring photograph of Mount Etna, Sicily. Roseanna Savage was highly commended for her perfectly framed photograph of the Trebarwith Strand, Cornwall.
Toby commented on the excellent standard of work which was submitted from all the girls. The photographs, as well as reviews from Toby, will be on display in the Design Foyer at Farlington School over the next two weeks for everyone to view. The photographs will then be framed and displayed outside the Geography classroom to create an inspiring and captivating space. The girls will now enter their photograph and report to the national competition organised by the Geographical Association. Good luck to all!
