Nord Anglia held the Global Campus Photographer of the Year Challenge for the 2016-17 school year. The Village School is proud to announce that three students had photographs that received high commendation. Their work was also featured in the annual Global Campus calendar. Congratulations to George P., Ana Maria R-P., and Linda L. for their outstanding work.
The Village School was one of 43 total schools from throughout the network that took part in the competition. After receiving a large number of submissions from all over the world, the panel of judges narrowed it down to 60 students who were awarded winner, runner up, or highly commended for the work they submitted.
Thoughts from our winners:
“'Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.' I chose this picture because it represents nature in a very inspirational way. In this landscape you can see beautiful mountains, trees and white clear snow. I love this picture because it makes me feel freedom and inspiration," said Ana Maria R-P.
“For me, nature creates the most basic, essential, and original thing. Nature has to maintain how the thing is originally and has a balance in-between everything. This picture does not only show the reflection of the view, but also show a deeper reflection that what you give to the nature, the nature will reflect you the same thing. The place I took this picture was a fantastic original landscape. However I found a corner of it which only had one tree. It means people influence the environment and break the balance of the nature. This photo shows me that no matter how you treat the nature, nature will give you the reflection," said Yuxuan L.
"I took this picture without thinking about it. After taking the picture I thought about it. I wonder what it looks like from the clouds down. Nature is all around us. When we think of nature we normally think of Jungles and woods, but there is nature all around us," said George P.
