We have once again been astounded by the number of entries and the level of excellence of the photos entered in The Lions Club of Howick Student Photo Competition this year.
61 entries from 6 district schools qualified for judging. The judges had no knowledge of the entrant's identities and judging was carried out in a secure location with only judges present. 12 outstanding photographs were selected for inclusion in the Howick Lions 2024 wall calendar.
The lead judge commented:
"Standards were generally high and clearly student photographers had spent time planning their photographs and picking the right moment. Also obvious was the thought given to location, time of day for best dramatic effect, use of colours to give impact to the images, and the angle of the light to produce an effect suitable for the end use in a wall calendar. Local beach scenes and sunsets appeared to be popular subject matter".
