Young Photographer Competition Success!

We were very happy to have our ballroom host the Whitby Rotary Club’s “Young Photographer Competition”

The competition was open to 12 and 13 year olds and was designed to develop their photography skills. We enlisted the help of our friends at View Yorkshire, and a photography workshop was led by David Kirtlan. Over the next few days, the participants followed a trail around Whitby, taking photos of certain points and views. They then submitted their best three photos. The photos were then judged by a panel made up of members of View Yorkshire, and of the Whitby Rotary Club.

Congratulations to Joseph Salt, Poppy Hartley and Nathaniel Reeve, who came first second and third respectively; and also to Isobel Price who won the award for the best group of three photos.

The ballroom played host to both the photography workshop, and also the awards event which welcomed family, friends and members of the Rotary Club, and View Yorkshire.

The View Yorkshire Group is a photography group on Facebook. A friendly group of like minded people all sharing a love of photography and Yorkshire. All levels are welcome from complete beginner to professional, whether you’re using the latest model of camera or your phone. Find out more about View Yorkshire¬†here
