FOTOFRINGE SCHOOLS – Brighton & Hove
(Round One has now closed)
About FotoFringe Schools
FotoFringe Schools is a free to enter photography competition which showcases ways in which schools are successfully tackling climate change and environmental degradation. Brighton & Hove school pupils were invited to submit three (per pupil) of their best environmental images of their school’s environmental projects. The photographs could be connected with any of the nine Eco-Schools topics including saving energy, growing vegetables, composting, wind turbines, solar panels, local wildlife, environmental workshops, walking/cycling to school.
Taiwo Williams, a member of Moulsecomb Primary School’s Eco Group, won the competition overall, as selected by judges Mel Friend, Karoki Lewis and Nina Emett.
All pupils taking part received a certificate and the winner received a gift voucher. The winning school Moulsecoomb Primary also received £100 for its Eco Group from “The Brighton & Hove Environmental education project” (BHee).
Selected photographs from all participants will be included in the FotoDocument Fringe digital image hub in April 2013. It will consist of a grid of thumbnail images, showcasing exciting solutions to problems associated with climate change and environmental degradation. There will be a special section from participating schools in Brighton and Hove. Viewers will be able to search for photographs according to location, subject or participating group (eg school). Photographs will be credited to the photographer or the school (if preferred), captioned and geo-located. Web links will be included where possible.
FotoDocument will launch further rounds of FotoDocument Fringe Schools later in the year.
FotoDocument Fringe – Schools is in partnership with Brighton & Hove environmental education and Brighton Photo Fringe.
