Global Campus Photographer of the Year

18 December 2017

We are delighted to announce that two of our students (Stella Williamson and Hannah Conway) have had success in this year's Global Campus Photographer Of The Year competition. Photos were on the theme 'Where I Live.' We had 67 entries across three age categories from our students here at BIS Bratislava, and our school judges had a difficult time selecting our 7 finalists to send to the Global Campus.

The final winning entries which will be published in the 2018 Global Campus calendar and distributed around the world, were chosen by a panel of independent judges for the Global Campus and UNICEF.  Every year, there are hundreds of photographs put forward by our 47 schools for judging, so our two young photographers can be very proud of their achievement. 

Stella's striking image, which she called 'Broken Pepsi' was taken in our playground.  Stella explained "I took this photo because I liked the colours and the crack was interesting. It showed that if something is broken it still looks nice. This fits the theme Where I Live because you always think your home is nice, even if there are broken bits or things that need improved. It shows you don’t need things to be perfect all the time. "

Hannah's image titled 'Through The Wall' was taken on a weekend walk looking into the cemetery in Vrakuna, Bratislava. Hannah says "This was taken near where I live. I like the fact that it is interesting to see what is through the gap in the wall, and that there was the green of nature hidden behind the concrete." This is the second time Hannah has enjoyed success in the Global Campus competition and it has encouraged her to pursue photography as a hobby. 

Stella is to be further congratulated as her 'Broken Pepsi' image was the age 8-11 Category Winner. Her photograph is now being judged against the other category winners by the UNICEF judges to see which will be on the front cover.  We wish Stella success in this second round of judging.

UNICEF may also select some of our entries (including from our students who did not make the final shortlist of winners) for exhibition around the world! We will be 'keeping our fingers crossed' that our other school winners (Dominica, Henrich, Mollie, Sofia and Ella) may be chosen.
