The Hepworth Gallery Photographic Competition


STOP PRESS - On the slideshow below, photographs 3 (Holly Langfield) and 4 (Leon Davies) were runners up in the KS3 category.  Their photographs will be framed and continue to be exhibited in the gallery until June.


The competition is in conjunction with The Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield and their current exhibition of photographer Martin Parr's work.

Students were invited to take a documentary style photograph around the theme of 'My Secret Wakefield' and submit them with the hopes of entering the wider compeition at The Hepworth. We were allowed to enter two categories, KS3 and KS4.

We had 14 entrants in total with the main competition in KS3! Judged by the department for entry to the Hepworth, 3 students were selected from KS3 and one from KS4 entries. The winning entrants are as follows

Leon Davies 7CR
Eliose Lovell 8ADu
Holly Langfeild 9ATL
Abbie Hudson 11SHn

These four photos will now go on display at the Hepworth Gallery alongside Martin Parrs work and be open to voting from the public to enter the next stage of the competition. If they get through the public vote, the overall winner will be chosen by the artist himself to win a prize for not only the entrant, but for their school too.
