Bridge College run by the Together Trust, a specialist further education college based in Openshaw, has launched its annual photography competition, open to all special schools and colleges in the North West.
The college, which is run by the Together Trust, supports young people aged 16 – 25 years with learning and/or physical disabilities, complex health needs, communication disorders and autism. Every year they accept entries from specialist schools and colleges across the region.
After shortlisting, the public can then vote for their favourite photograph on the Together Trust’s website, with the winner attending a ceremony at the college in July to accept their prize.
Last year’s winner, Niall McGoldrick, from Underley Garden School in Kirby Lonsdale said:
"I am so happy to have won! This really means a lot to me and has inspired me to do more photography."
Lisa Duncalf, Principal of Bridge College said:
“We love hosting the photo competition every year; it’s really inspiring to see how much time, effort and creativity goes into the entries. It’s fantastic to be able to showcase the talents of students from across the region.”
“This year we’ve announced a new theme for the photography competition, ‘Light and dark’, and want to encourage all specialist schools and colleges in the area to get involved.”
The deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday 25 May 2018, and the public vote will be open from 11- 22 June. You can find out more about how to enter Bridge College’s photo competition and the entry requirements on the Together Trust website here.
