YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHER’S IMAGE SELECTED FOR POSTCARD DESIGN

A photographer from Pool Academy has seen her seaside picture selected for a postcard design. Neve, in Year 9, entered her image of the sea, sand and lighthouse into a competition run by the academy to find a new design for the Geography Postcards.

More than 30 students entered the competition but Neve’s picture stood out as the top winner. It will now be reproduced and used on some of the postcards Pool Academy sends home to celebrate excellent work.

The image will also be used as Pool Academy’s Geography Facebook cover photograph.

Neve said she enjoyed taking photographs.

Kirstie Conway-Baker, Geography teacher, said: “We had over 35 entries for the competition. Neve's photo showed not only the physical geography of the beach and different sediment types but also the lighthouse as well.”

Neve was also given 30 achievement points for winning.
