Talent, flair and creativity abound in Schools’ Photographic Competition

2013-09-10 00:00

CREATIVITY and a keen eye brought pupils from various high schools artistic recognition for their photographs at the Schools’ Photographic Competition, part of Culture@Kearsney in conjunction with the Matthew Willman Visual Arts Foundation. The winners were announced last night.

More than 165 entries were received in five categories and will be exhibited daily until Friday from 9 am until 3 pm in the Greyhound Pavilion at Kearsney College. Entry is free.

Earlier this year Kearsney College launched the programme to celebrate the dynamic and vibrant arts scene in KZN schools. It aims to enrich the development of the arts in all its forms — and has included a battle of the bands, one-act plays, dance festival, art exhibition and a primary and high schools choral festival.

Winners in each category received a cash prize of R2 000, second place R1 000 and third R500.
